  • Protection enchantment is no longer as effective as all the other Protection enchantments combined.
  • Unbreaking enchantment can be applied to anything with durability using Enchanted Books.

General[edit]

Controls
  • Pressing CTRL+Q by default (Or your "Drop" button if changed in controls), the player drops a full stack instead of one item.
Notice
  • 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 Minecraft 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]
