Additions[edit]

Blocks[edit]

Chests
  • Added 3 new textures: xmaschest.png, largexmaschest.png, and skis.png
    • xmaschest.png changes the chest texture to resemble a red gift.
    • largexmaschest.png changes the large chest texture to resemble a green gift.
    • skis.png is unused, dummy file. Dinnerbone said he added this file as a red herring.[2]

Changes[edit]

Gameplay[edit]

Creative
Enchanting
  • Protection is no longer as effective as all the other Protection enchantments combined.
  • Unbreaking can be applied to anything with durability using enchanted books.

General[edit]

Controls
  • Pressing CTRL+Q by default (Or the "Drop" button if changed in controls), the player drops a full stack instead of one item.
Notices
  • Added a notice/warning for users still playing on PowerPCs or Java 5 (Java 1.5).
    • Mojang plans to drop support for Java 5 by version 1.6.[3] This is due to the most recent versions of LWJGL no longer supporting Java 5, with PowerPC also no longer supported by Apple to be made compatible with Java 6 or newer.[4]
