The 1.4 update? Around Halloween time? With scary stuff in it?

quote update
Wooden logs will be rotated according to what side of the block they are place on.
Place it on the side of a block to get a sideways log.
Place it on the top/bottom of a block to get a topside log.
Isn't this already a thing?

Right now it's placed depending on which direction you're facing, not which side of the block it's placed on. It can get quite annoying, which is why it's being changed.

All in all, I'm very excited for this update. Corner stairs, item frames, beacons, flower pots, pumpkin pie, coloured armour... The sheer amount of content in this update will be great. I'm somewhat disappointed that both promises made for 1.4 since before even 12w32a came out (the mod API and the new lighting engine) have been pushed back, but with or without those features I'm going to enjoy 1.4.

It looks really cool, does anyone know when it's going to get released? Or the estimated date right now?

Mojang has said that the update is going to be released sometime in the final week of October. The Minecraft Wiki says "Possibly October 24th", so here's to hoping.

October 24th was confirmed awhile ago on twitter and one of the snapshot posts.
