This is a list of 1.5 development versions.

13w01a

13w01a is the first snapshot released for 1.5, and the first snapshot released in 2013.

Additions

  • Added the redstone comparator
    • Has 2 inputs and 1 output
    • If A≥B, the output will be A, otherwise it will stay off – When the comparator is toggled, it will output full strength instead of A it will subtract B from A and need a comparator as input for B
    • Replacement for the capacitor
    • Whichever side gives the bigger signal will be considered signal B
  • Added the daylight sensor block
    • Output power while receiving sunlight
    • The level varies depending on the time zone, and it does not function at night
  • Added a hopper block
  • Added a trapped chest that activates redstone
    • Gives out a signal depending on the amount of players looking inside. 1 person = 1 strength signal, 2 people = 2, etc.
    • Crafted with a chest and a tripwire hook.
    • Large trapped chests can be staggered with large chests to allow more compact storage.
    • Texture is slightly different than a normal chest, with a red stain around the latch.
  • Added weighted pressure plates that detects item stacks
    • Gold version reaches full strength at 60 items.
    • Iron version reaches full strength at 600 items.
    • Linear, so 10 strength signal means twice as many items as a 5 strength signal
  • Added block of redstone
    • Stores redstone dust similar to blocks of diamond, etc.
    • Emits constant redstone power
    • Works as pushable redstone power source
  • Added a new nether quartz ore to the Nether
    • Drops 1 nether quartz item when mined
    • Generates around netherrack in the Nether
  • Added a nether brick item for crafting nether brick blocks
    • Obtained by smelting netherrack

Changes

  • Death messages now show the weapon someone was killed with
  • Redstones circuits are more consistent and pistons should be more stable
  • Inventory management changes
    • Double-click items to fill the stack up as much as possible
    • Drag item stacks around to divide them up over the dragged-over slots
    • Drag item stacks around with the right mouse button to place one of that stack in each dragged-over slot, if that slot is not occupied already
    • Shift double click an item stack to move all other item stacks of that kind to that part of the inventory
    • Press Q while the mouse is over an item in the inventory or a container to drop it
  • The texture for the locked chest block has been changed

Changes

  • You can now shift-click rails onto Hoppers to empty Chest Minecarts
  • All containers output a redstone signal when a Comparator is placed against it directly. The strength of it depends on how full the container is.[1]

  • Added Minecart with TNT
    • Triggered by Activator Rails
    • Crafting recipe is a TNT block on top of a minecart (allowing for creation in the 2x2 inventory)
    • When it derails, it explodes instantly, ignoring the usual timer delay
    • Explodes even more violently the faster it goes
    • In Creative mode when left clicked while moving, the Minecart with TNT explodes

Changes

  • Updated language files
    • Language files can now be updated via the background downloader (no need for a new Minecraft release)
  • Trapped Chest is now in Decoration Blocks in creative mode inventory
  • Improved texture packs
    • Textures now use one file per block/item, which are stitched together at runtime – Texture sizes don't need to be consistent

    • Special rules apply for water, lava, compass and clock

    • Updated texture
    • When fed by containers, they will now start giving out a signal as soon as 1 item is in the container, allowing for empty container detection
  • Improved the Hopper
    • Is now controllable by redstone – Power it to disable item forwarding
    • Added a proper icon
    • Is no longer considered wooden (cannot be used as a fuel in a furnace, etc.)
    • New crafting recipe uses iron ingots rather than stone
    • The redstone signal emitted when a Comparator is placed against it directly has changed
      • 1 item will give a signal strength of 1, a 1/3 of a stack (21 for items which stack to 64) gives a signal strength of 2
      • The number of full stacks x 3 = Signal strength
      • E.g. 2 stacks of an item/block will give a signal strength of 6, while 2 potions will also give a signal strength of 6 (because a potion occupies one stack)

13w02b

13w02b is the fourth snapshot for 1.5, and was released to fix some of the bugs and crashes in the 13w02a snapshot.

Changes
