I recall Mojang stating they would release the source code of Minecraft sooner or later, but searching both on google and on Minecraft sites I wasn't about to find it.
So... is it available somewhere? With what license?
PS: not interested in sources decompiled from the binaries, only in genuinely officially released sources.

Notch said at some point that he plans to release the sources once the game is no longer selling, but that was WAY before it got this big.
And yes, it's still selling.

I know there's an already accepted answer and it's not quite on the spot - but I also came here via Google and I was looking to learn and thought others might, too.
There are other open-source Minecraft clones (and InfiniMiner which is what Minecraft is based off, too).
I'd suggest anyone who is looking to study up on it looks at these:
