Java Edition 1.0.0
Adventure Update (Part 2)
November 18, 2011
November 13, 2011
1.0.0 (known as 1.0 in the launcher) is the full release of Minecraft: Java Edition (also known as the second part of the Adventure Update), released on November 18, 2011. It added brewing, enchanting, the End, hardcore mode, breeding and more.
It was released during MINECON 2011, marking Minecraft (Java Edition) as officially released on that day, after two and a half years, or 916 days of development.
Initially named "Beta 1.9", Mojang instead opted to release this update under the name "Minecraft 1.0.0", but this decision was made after development versions tagged as Beta 1.9 were already released, so all pre-releases for this version are labeled as "Beta 1.9".

- Originally, this update was planned to be released as Beta 1.9, but after a few pre-releases were pushed out, it was decided that 1.0.0 would be the version name, and to push the release date back to during MINECON 2011.
- The 2014 April Fools joke references the version villagers were implemented in as Beta 1.9, even though they were technically a 1.0.0 implementation.
- Aside from marking the "true" release of the game, this update is notable for being the last update to be developed by Notch before he left the Minecraft team.
- This update breaks the naming conventions for top-level release updates. For example, were it to follow the same naming scheme as 1.0.0, 1.1 would be "1.1.0", 1.2 would be "1.2.0", etc. This format is, however, used in Bedrock Edition.
- Duplicate intended.
- Now just called Spawner.
- This change occurred between the last development version for 1.0.0, RC2, and the full release of 1.0.0.
