The Raspberry Pi Foundation updated the Raspbian software the week before last. The good news is that Minecraft is now preinstalled in Raspbian, so you can start playing it, and more importantly programming it in Python, straight away.
However, it installs into a new location, so you might need to update any programs you've written so they can find the Minecraft Raspberry Pi API. Here's the code you need to get Minecraft working again:
mc = minecraft.Minecraft.create()
mc.postToChat("Welcome to Minecraft!")
The important line is the second one - the API is now found at this location. The rest of this code posts a message to Minecraft to show it's working.
If you're a Minecraft fan, try out my Minecraft Maze Maker program!
