Additions[edit]

Mobs[edit]

Endermite
  • Appearance is similar to a silverfish's appearance, except they are purple and emit ender particles.
  • Endermen are hostile towards them.
  • Sometimes spawn in place of an enderman teleporting away.
  • Despawn after 2 minutes.
  • Spawn with a 5 percent chance when an ender pearl lands.
  • Not yet completed – endermites may have something to do with dragon eggs.[1]

Changes[edit]

Blocks[edit]

General
  • Now internally use states instead of metadata.
  • Metadata will still be used for a while.
  • Block states of the block being looked at will now be displayed on the F3 menu - Examples: redstone, door.
  • Internally, metadata no longer needs to be calculated out of the 4-bit data value, instead, the values of specified properties can now be easily gotten and set.
Block models
  • Converted fence gates, brewing stands.
  • Lighting now works with models (most models for some users).
Graphics
  • Dropped items now face the player in all three directions on fast graphics.
Fence gates
  • Show two holes in their item icon.

Mobs[edit]

Creepers, skeletons, witches, zombies, zombie pigmen
  • now run away from exploding creepers.
Endermen
  • Walks slightly faster.
Silverfish
  • Will occasionally before moving again (similar to most mobs).
Slime
  • Seem to jump a bit more randomly.

Non-mob entities[edit]

Minecarts
  • Changed minecart physics.
    • Minecarts now go faster and farther.
    • Improved collision and position handling.
    • Minecarts can derail at corners if going too fast, as well as refuse to go uphill.
Minecart with Furnace
  • They now give a much greater boost to other minecarts.
  • When powered, they can move on non-powered rails without decelerating.
Minecart with TNT
  • Minecart with TNT explosions no longer stack.

General[edit]

Debug screen
  • On the right hand side, a display shows up if you are looking at a block, giving various pieces of information and NBT data about it.
  • Looking at a door and redstone shows you the state of the block.
    • Door: which way it is facing, if it is open, which half you are looking at, if it is powered, and what side the hinge is.
    • Redstone: power direction (up, down, side, none) for all compass directions (north, south, east, west) and power level.
  • Not 100% complete, data for a lot of blocks still missing.

Fixes[edit]

6 issues fixed
From released versions before 1.8
  • MC-36822 – Minecart with command block merging.
