Additions[edit]

Swamp huts

  • Spawns witches.

General[edit]

NBT tags
  • Custom items can now be named using NBT tags (intended for custom map makers).
    • Using the NBT, it is possible to add custom names to items, as well as a lore list for that item.
Superflat
  • Added superflat preset "Redstone Ready" with 52 layers of sandstone, 3 layers of stone and 1 layer of bedrock.

Changes[edit]

Blocks[edit]

Gameplay[edit]

Inventory
  • Better management.
  • The pick block action now works on blocks that are represented as items in the inventory (E.g.: repeaters, redstone dust, and tripwire).
  • Pressing the 1-9 hotkeys while hovering over an item will put that item into the inventory bar.
  • In creative mode, players can now shift-click items from the hotbar to the survival inventory screen.
  • The left-click action will no longer open doors, pull levers, push buttons or open trapdoors.

Fixes[edit]

13 bugs fixed

  • Fixed the wither's starting explosion not being disabled by the mobGriefing gamerule[2]
  • Fixed a few crash bugs related to world generation, map item expansion, and other things.
  • Reverted previous lighting changes, which corrected such bugs as:
    • The Nether being extremely CPU intensive.
    • Map generation taking extremely long.
  • Fixed mob AI considering cobblestone walls as blocks of normal height.
  • Fixed a few texture oddities with the witch.
  • Fixed entities in water producing glitchy water sound.
  • Gaining multiple levels at a time will no longer play the leveling up sound over itself as many times as leveled.
  • Fixed the "A 64 bit Java installation is recommended for 'Far' render distance (you have 32 bit)" message being covered by the bottom 2 buttons.
  • Fixed pets teleporting around randomly.[3]
  • Fixed being unable to place paintings larger than 1x2 and them popping off if they have been placed before.
  • Fixed destroying blocks under you with Efficiency-enchanted gear.
  • Fixed potion spawners crashing the game.[4]
