Minecraft snapshot 15w47c

Snapshot 15w47c is now available. In your launcher. Right there. Yes, where it said 15w47b yesterday.

Snapshot 15w47b is now available and fixes some issues that made yesterdays snapshot seem haunted.

15w47a release notes:

Snapshot. Time. Again. Yay!

Our issue tracker is now the home page in our browsers and we are going to keep it that way until Minecraft 1.9 is ready for release. We want to say “thank you” to everyone who’s reporting issues and voting on them. And of course we also want to thank our moderators helping us to focus on the important tickets, they are doing an awesome job to keep the issues under control.

Due to some complaints that we were too focused on fixing bugs and not adding more features for 1.9, this weeks snapshot will focus on solving issues instead.
