Protocol version


1.7.6-pre1 is the first pre-release for Java Edition 1.7.6.



  • 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
  • Added support for name changing.
    • The ability to actually change account names will not come until 1.8.[3]
  • 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.

  • 1.7.6-pre1 is the first pre-release which uses the new naming convention, version-pren. Previous versions incremented the minor version number instead of the pre-release counter.
