A finished version of Minecraft is releasing this Friday, creator Markus "Notch" Persson announced today.

Through his blog, Notch says that while this is the finished version, that doesn't mean the developer will stop working on the game. "We’ll keep adding to the game just as we have so far, and we have many exciting plans for the next year.. some of these will be announced fairly soon," he said.

Some of those announcement are expected to come during the game's first convention MineCon this Thursday in Las Vegas, Nev.
