Other editions of 1.1

Beta 1.1 added support for special events on specific dates during the holiday period as well as other changes and fixes. The original Beta 1.1 minecraft.jar did not include the font.txt file, making all text invisible in-game. Notch attempted to fix this and released a new version, also called Beta 1.1 (visible if the player manually adds font.txt into the broken minecraft.jar), a few minutes later. However, this fix did not work because font.txt was still missing. Notch released a third update a few minutes after that, and renamed it Beta 1.1_01.
