Best answer

From the Minecraft loading screen


* Weather (rain, snow, thunder)
* Statistics
* Achievements
* Detector rail
* Booster rail
* Performance improvements

More statistics and achievements will be added over time as we develop the game. They’re only stored locally at the moment, but we’ll slowly be rolling out online storing of achievements over time.

The performance improvements have been good so far. I've heard that there isn't as much graphical tearing when entering new quadrants of huge buildings, etc.

Theres six new additions in the minecraft beta 1.5 update

First: Weather was added (rain,snow and thunder)

Second: Statistics were added (Ex. How many times you broken a tree or died)

Third: Achievements were added they are only for you right now though online achievements will be added later (Ex. Ride a pig off a cliff)

Fourth: Detector rails were added they are like pressure plates except minecarts will activate them they will activate redstone also

Fifth: (Powered Rails) Booster rails have two different modes off and on if off they will stop the minecart if on they will speed up the minecart

Sixth: Performance Improvements

If you launch Minecraft you can see the latest changes on the loader screen just before you hit Login. Of the most obvious changes is the addition of Achievements, statistics, Weather effects. There's a few new blocks and a few performance improvements too :)

The main things are:

  • Weather
  • Statistics and Achievements
  • New Rail Car (Detector Rail and Booster Rail
  • Performance Increases (apparently - still Java though, so can't be that good xP)

  • Weather basically, and the only other things are statistics and achievments. The GUI now has advanced and regular. There are also better improvements to the running of the game.
  • The next best thing is that more achievments will be added soon, on top of the 16 out right now!
  • Cannot forget the new types of rails for your carts!
