team at Mojang to do prior to the game's official release this coming weekend was some "very minor tweaks".
If you can't wait until the official release date, fear not -- Mojang is more than happy to break its own (virtual) "street date" for the game, and has made the official, non-beta, 1.0 client available for direct download right here.
In an interesting inversion of the way triple-A publishers do business, too, Notch also noted that he was more than happy for publications to review Minecraft based on its current post-beta, pre-official release "release candidate" status. You wouldn't catch a company like EA doing something like that. Indeed, in some cases companies like EA don't get copies of their games into our hands until almost immediately before their review embargo is up. But I digress.
MineCon is taking place this weekend in Las Vegas and will mark the official release date of Minecraft 1.0, sans "Beta" tag. It's been a long road for Notch, his team and the rapidly-growing community of Minecraft players, but the end is nigh.
Until the team decide to start adding new updates to the "finished" version, that is.
