Additions[edit]

Mobs[edit]

Iron Golems
  • New utility mob.
  • Occasionally spawns in large villages as a defense.
  • Can also be spawned by arranging 4 iron blocks and a pumpkin.

General[edit]

Controls
  • Added camera controls (These were accidentally added. Jeb noted them as "deadmau5 camera" controls and will likely be removed again in an upcoming snapshot).[2][3]
  • Pressing F6 causes the player to get "stuck" to the camera until F6 is pressed again. This allows players to appear to phase into blocks.
  • Pressing F9 causes the camera to freeze in its position, allowing to see the player model rotating in third person view.
  • Scrolling the mouse wheel (which also scrolls the inventory) rotates the forward, left, right, and back directions.
  • Pressing Y, H, U, O, I, K, J, L, N and M change the camera positioning in a variety of ways. While pressing two functionally connected keys at the same time (example: Y + H) will revert that view back to normal (but U + O doesn't work).

Changes[edit]

Blocks[edit]

Redstone Torches
  • Can now be placed on the top of glass.
Stairs
  • Can now be placed upside-down when placed against the bottom of a block.

World generation[edit]

General
  • Lava ponds and flat stone areas generate on the surface more frequently.

General[edit]

Language Files
  • Removed some Canadian English stereotypes.
  • Multiplayer no longer says "Go camping with your buddies, eh?"

Fixes[edit]

1 bug fixed
