Changes[edit | edit source]

General[edit | edit source]

  • Skin
    • Skins and capes are now distributed through servers.
      • Skins server outages will occur less frequently and have less impact.[1][2]
      • Skin changes will no longer require client restarting, at worst re-logging will update the skin for everybody.
      • Server-altered skins/capes are not possible - only signed URLs are stored server-side.
      • Duplicate skins no longer need to be downloaded twice.
      • Server traffic will barely be affected.
  • Name Changing
    • Support for name changing.
      • Only the support for changing names, actually being able to change names will come after 1.8 release. [3]
  • 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.
