It was released at 21:54:50 UTC on November 18, 2011, during MINECON 2011, marking Minecraft (Java Edition) as officially released on that day, after two and a half years 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 labelled 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 become "1.1.0", 1.2 would become "1.2.0", etc.
