Alpha 0.12.1 is an update to Minecraft: Pocket Edition that added many new things such as the Nether, brewing, enchanting, hunger, weather, and much more. The release was initially intended to coincide with the release of the Windows 10 version on July 29, 2015 but encountered obstacles in its development, forcing it to be delayed, so therefore, this is the first version of 0.12 to be on Pocket Edition.[1]
