  • 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.
    • The 2014 April Fools joke references the version villagers were implemented in as Beta 1.9, even though they were technically a 1.0.0 implementation.
  • Aside from marking the "true" release of the game, this update is notable for being the last update to be developed by Notch before he left the Minecraft team.
  • This update breaks the naming conventions for top-level release updates. For example, were it to follow the same naming scheme as 1.0.0, 1.1 would become "1.1.0", 1.2 would become "1.2.0", etc.
  • 1.0.0 is the only Java Edition update to have any release candidates.
