Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Originally, this update was planned to be released as Beta 1.9, but after a few pre-releases were pushed out, it was decided that 1.0.0 would be the version name, and to push the release date back to during MineCon 2011.
  • This update is also the first update to have release candidates.
    • Arguably, this update has the most release candidates for any major update so far, at two release candidates.
