13w39a is the eighth snapshot released for Java Edition 1.7.2.
- Generated on the lowest surface levels of the mesa biome.
- Behaves like normal sand.
- Can be smelted into glass and crafted into TNT, but cannot be crafted into sandstone.
- Can only be obtained using
/give @p 422,
/give @p hopper_command_blockor
- Activated by activator rails.
- Run their command every so often as long as they are powered - Running a command block minecart across a single powered activator rail at full speed will run its command thrice.
- Can be success-tested while on a detector rail with a redstone comparator next to the rail (just like how the minecart with chest and minecart with hopper can be fill-checked).
- Can now give multiple enchantments.
- Orange terracotta generates in place of sandstone, but not in the same type of formation.
- Now done using Log4j 2.
- Default logging location is now in logs/latest.logs, older logs are archived in logs/2013-09-23-1.lg.gz, with the number at the end increasing each startup.
- The way logs are saved can be changed, examples: html page, database, errors only, no logging at all.
