1.7.6 is an update which implements a new player skin system, and support for player name changing. It is incompatible with 1.7.2 - 1.7.5 servers. It was replaced the same day by 1.7.7 to fix a major bug, and then again the next week by 1.7.8 and 1.7.9. The number settled on was 1.7.9.

Changes[edit]

  • Improved 'configure' screen.
  • Can now OP players from the config screen.[2]
  • Easier to invite/uninvite players.
  • New button to close/unclose realm.
Name changing
  • Support for name changing.
    • Only the support for changing names, actually being able to change name came on February 4, 2015.[3][4]
Options
  • The server resource packs option is now per-server, and has three settings: prompt, enabled, and disabled.
  • The minimum setting for the FOV option is now 30 instead of 70.
Skins
  • Skins and capes are now distributed through servers.
  • Skins server outages will occur less frequently and have less impact.[5][6]
