Hello, Minecraft beta just came out about 4 days ago (today's christmas eve :3) and i have just one question that hasn't been answered... Is SMP complete?! On Notch's to-do list it was right at the top with two big "Next Action" and "Before beta" label on it.
So, without further ado, here is the beta change log up to the current version! (christmas eve 2010):

...and something else, which is even more rare (DeadMau5 skin only in use on Deadmau5's server).

You can't store things in the inventory crafting fields anymore.
Dungeons are more common.
When looking in a double chest you can't do anything with the two
bottom rows in your inventory.
Players get disconnected after a short while on local Minecraft servers.
