Server version 0.2.6_01 was released later on the same day to fix a bug where players no longer received snowballs when entering a server.
- Added proper hurt animations and sounds to mobs and players.
- The multiplayer join server screen now remembers the latest entered IP.
- Creepers now animate before exploding
- Explosions animate properly.
- Increased chunk saving frequency on the server.
- You can now see sneaking players. Names of sneaking players aren’t visible through walls, and are visible a much shorter distance.
- Buttons, levers, and pressure plates animate properly when activated.
- 8 bugs fixed
- Leaving sneak mode no longer rapidly plays all the step sounds that it silenced during the sneak.
- Swords and other weapons now deal damage properly.
- Fixed dead players logging in as invisible ghosts
- Made arrows visible and deal damage.
- No more infinite free arrows.
- Hoes now produce proper seeds.
- Server logging now appends to server.log rather than overwriting it.
- Fixed minecarts and pigs moving twice as fast as they should when ridden.
- When Notch released 1.2.4, he accidentally labelled it as 1.2.3_05 in game. This version also had a bug that caused creepers to spawn far too frequently. This was later fixed with the release of 1.2.4_01, which means there was never a client version of 1.2.4.
