As of right now, it's version 0.1.1 and was based on Alpha 0.6.1 of Pocket Edition.
Sadly, It hasn't been updated since 2013.
Code: Select all
“The original team has stopped supporting it and starting with 0.9 MCPE became a lot more ambitious technically, which also means that it became a lot harder to strip down to run on a Raspberry Pi. Actually, we finished removing all Pi related code to reduce complexity in 2015. Maybe someday we'll revisit it but I wouldn't hold my breath. On the other hand, Win10 runs on the Pi so you can run the Win10 version there! ... I guess it's something.” — Tommaso Checci on the discontinuation of Pi Edition
But it's just interesting to wonder what they might do if they were to ever update it.
- Would they update it closer to a newer Pocket Edition
- Or maybe update it to work with the Better Together thing.. probably not actually..
- It would be nice to see Survival mode added
- As well as mobs that would actually spawn..
But then again, it's kinda good that it hasn't been updated,
as that means it uses less resources, meaning that any pi could run it well,
making it good for it's main purpose, which is to have more fun learning to code.
