Protocol version


Other editions of 1.7.9

1.7.9 is an update released to fix some further issues with skins in 1.7.8, and to improve the speed it converts names.[1] It is compatible with servers.


  • Naming
    • Improved name conversion speed.
  • Skin system
    • Added support for the new skin system.
    • Loosened restrictions so NPCs and similar are still possible for now.
    • Servers still have to send signed blobs to show skins, but there are no more timeout & "is it for this player" checks.
