13 bugs fixed

  • Fixed the wither's starting explosion not being disabled by the mobGriefing gamerule[2]

  • Fixed a few texture oddities with the witch.
  • Fixed entities in water producing glitchy water sound.
  • Gaining multiple levels at a time will no longer play the leveling up sound over itself as many times as leveled.
  • Fixed the "A 64 bit Java installation is recommended for 'Far' render distance (you have 32 bit)" message being covered by the bottom 2 buttons.
  • Fixed pets teleporting around randomly[3]
  • Fixed being unable to place paintings larger than 1x2 and them popping off if they have been placed before
  • Fixed destroying blocks under you with Efficiency-enchanted gear
  • Fixed potion spawners crashing the game[4]
