Well News & Digital Diamonds section went puff. So I created thread for Minecraft snapshots!
This post will be always for last snapshot. (well b, c and so wil be here too).

Here is changelog from wiki for 14w27a:
Additions

Mobs

  • Rabbits
    • Have 8 skins including: Black, White, Brown, Gold, Black & White, Salt & Pepper, Toast, and the Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog
      • Naming a Rabbit Spawn egg or Name Tag "Toast" will give Rabbits a special skin as a memorial to user xyzen420's girlfriend's rabbit Toast
      • The Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog
        • 1/1000 chance of spawning, it is hostile and deals 5 (damage) in easy, 8 (damage) in normal difficulty and 12 (damage) in hard
        • A reference to the movie Monty Python and the Holy Grail
        • It is perfectly white except for its mouth, which has a blood red outline
        • It can be directly spawned in with the command /summon Rabbit ~ ~ ~ {RabbitType:99}
    • Rabbits can be tamed/bred using carrots, golden carrots or dandelions
      • Rabbits cannot be bred unless tamed
    • Rabbits will be scared of the player and run away from it when untamed, similarly to ocelots
Items

Gameplay

  • NBT tags
    • New {CommandStats:} tag for command blocks and signs
      • Allows a command block or sign to increase a certain score in the scoreboard when it runs successfully
        • The command will increase the score based on the number of items/blocks/entities/successes
        • For example, a command block with this tag running a command which affects items (e.g. /give) will cause it to update the score based on the number of items given
      • Usage: {CommandStats:{AffectedItemsName:"playername", AffectedItemsObjective:"objective", AffectedBlocksName:"playername", AffectedBlocksObjective:"objective", AffectedEntitiesName:"playername", AffectedEntitiesObjective:"objective", SuccessCountName:"playername", SuccessCountObjective:"objective"}}
Changes

  • Improved debug mode world type
    • Tweaked world creation
      • Other world options are not available
      • Only Spectator mode can be enabled
    • Now includes additional block states
    • Arrangement of blocks is very different and a lot smaller, every block state only generates once
  • F3 Debug screen
    • Now shows variant states after the item (ex. minecraft:cauldron[level=1])
  • Particles
    • Changed the particle effect when landing on a block, looks a lot more scattered
  • Block models
    • Replaced block state names with the actual block state data, separated by commas.

At least sheep are useful too.
Also new players will be happy - no matter what passive land creature they kill, they will get food.

Well world was much smaller back then :p

------------------------------------------------------

There is new snapshot - 14w30b.

Here is changelog:

Additions

  • Banners
    • Can be worn as head gear - but only using commands
    • Over 400[sup]6[/sup] possible combinations
    • Crafted like a sign, just with one color of wool instead of planks
    • Can be stacked to 16
    • Most patterns are created by arranging dyes in certain ways around a banner on a crafting table
    • Additional patterns: creeper, skull & crossbones, brick, and flower - making these without dyes will result in a black pattern, use dyes to get different colors (items: creeper skull, wither skeleton skull, brick block, oxeye daisy)
    • 33 crafting recipes which produce different patterns
    • Up to 6 layers of patterns possible
    • Can be placed on walls or on the ground (16 rotations possible)
    • Sway with the wind
    • Can be cloned by crafting them together with a blank banner
    • Top-most layer can be removed using cauldrons
  • NBT tags
    • New Silent tag for entities
      • Setting to 1 disables sound produced by that entity, such as idle and hurt sounds.
Changes

  • Commands

  • Video Settings
    • Render distance slider now goes up to 32 when using 64-bit Java

    • Threaded chunk rebuilds
  • Lighting
    • Completely fixed black spots
    • You will need to re-load old worlds for them to be fixed[sup][2][/sup]
  • F3 debug screen
    • Now displays how many chunk sections are being rendered currently and how many chunk sections are out of view in percent, the OpenGL version, display size, vendor and GPU
    • "Vanilla" added to the version number. eg: "Minecraft 14w30b (14w30b/Vanilla)"
      • Presumably this will say something different if modded. No mods (or even APIs) currently exist for versions this recent.
