Additions[edit]

  • Added (currently useless) dragon egg.
  • Added the following to /title/ in minecraft.jar:
    • credits.txt
    • earlyplayers.txt
    • win.txt
  • Added "Particles" setting in Video Settings
    • Has three possible states:
      • "All", rendering all particle effects
      • "Decreased", rendering half of all particle effects
      • "Minimal", rendering no particle effects (except for those created when breaking blocks).
  • Added ending titles and credits.
  • End crystal added
    • Is an entity which sits atop of a block of bedrock.
    • It is diamond shaped, with 2 cubes spinning on their axis with a point at the center that fires a healing beam at the ender dragon when within range, and can be destroyed with a melee or hit with an arrow, causing an explosion.
    • They appear on all obsidian spikes in the End.

Changes[edit]

  • Revised beds
    • Attempting to sleep in a bed while hostile mobs are nearby will display "You may not rest now, there are monsters nearby".
  • Several block's tool weaknesses have been fixed, such as crafting tables now mining faster with an axe and rails now mining faster with a pickaxe.
  • Mined stairs of any materials will drop a stair block now instead of a block form of its material.
  • Changes to the mining time of many blocks, including redstone ore, stone brick, nether brick, iron bars, doors, monster spawners and obsidian, making their mining times much faster.
  • 'Efficiency' enchantment now affects all blocks for any item enchanted with it.
  • Tools not suited to digging a certain block can be faster than digging by hand, e.g. a pickaxe can dig dirt faster than by hand, but not faster than by shovel.
  • More minor changes to textures, this time to:
    • Side texture of grass, adhering to dirt texture change in previous pre-release.
    • Sand.
  • Sun and moon are square again.
  • Downward flowing water now creates flowing water once more.
  • More finished ender dragon boss fight.
    • "Boss Health" meter appears on the middle top part of the screen in the same purple hue as the ender dragon.
    • Leaves behind a fountain like bedrock structure with the dragon egg sitting on top, and has an exit portal to return to the players spawn point/bed.

  • Armor durability is much back to being larger, larger than it even was in Beta 1.8.

  • Lily pads are now a block which can be stood on.
  • Ferns, tall grass and lily pads are now available in the creative inventory.
  • Unnecessary block versions of cake and sugar cane removed from creative inventory.
  • Enchantment tables now take time to mine, instead of one punch.
