Non-mob entities[edit]

Minecart with TNT

  • In Creative mode when left clicked while moving, the Minecart with TNT explodes

Changes[edit]

Blocks[edit]

Anvils
  • Improved naming of containers
    • Renamed Chests, Trapped Chests, Dispensers, Furnaces, Brewing Stands, and Enchantment Tables will display the new name in their GUI where the normal name used to appear.
Hoppers
  • Is now controllable by redstone – Power it to disable item forwarding.
  • Added a proper icon.
  • Is no longer considered wooden (cannot be used as a fuel in a furnace, etc.).
  • New crafting recipe uses iron ingots rather than stone.
  • The redstone signal emitted when a Comparator is placed against it directly has changed.
    • 1 item will give a signal strength of 1, a 1/3 of a stack (21 for items which stack to 64) gives a signal strength of 2.
    • The number of full stacks x 3 = Signal strength.
    • E.g. 2 stacks of an item/block will give a signal strength of 6, while 2 potions will also give a signal strength of 6 (because a potion occupies one stack).
Lava
  • Changed textures.
Redstone Comparator
  • Updated texture.
  • When fed by containers, they will now start giving out a signal as soon as 1 item is in the container, allowing for empty container detection.
Slabs
Trapped chests
  • Now in Decoration Blocks in creative mode inventory.

Mobs[edit]

General
  • Improved naming of mob eggs.
    • Mobs spawned from renamed eggs have the name of the egg and the names will appear in the death message.
    • Mobs can now display their custom name as nametag using an NBT tag.
Skeletons
  • Improved aiming.
  • Now shoots from 15 blocks away, instead of 10
  • Accuracy changes by difficulty

World generation[edit]

Abandoned mineshafts

Gameplay[edit]

Language
  • Updated language files.
    • Language files can now be updated via the background downloader (no need for a new Minecraft release).
Texture packs
  • Textures now use one file per block/item, which are stitched together at runtime – Texture sizes don't need to be consistent.
  • Any block and item can be animated by putting the frames underneath each other in the right .png – Use an optional .txt to specify frame order and duration.
  • Special rules apply for water, lava, compass, and clock.
  • Existing texture packs will "automagically" be converted.
  • Vanilla textures will be used if texture files are missing.
