Beta 1.6.6[1] is a version of Java Edition Beta released on May 31, 2011, which contains minor changes and fixes some of the bugs and crashes in Beta 1.6.5.

Additions[edit]

General[edit]

Options
  • Video Settings
    • Added a Performance section.
    • Can be set to Max FPS, Balanced or Power saver.

Changes[edit]

Blocks[edit]

Glowstone
  • Changed the material from "glass" to "stone".
    • This means the player would need a pickaxe to get resources from it.
    • This also means the player can now place redstone, torches, levers, etc. on the block.
  • Made glowstone drop more loot (2–4 glowstone dust).
  • Made the recipe sizes for creating glowstone smaller (2×2 instead of 3×3).
Wool
  • Made the recipe sizes for creating wool smaller (2×2 instead of 3×3).

Items[edit]

Bone meal
  • Can grow grass and flowers on grass blocks.

Non-mob entities[edit]

Boats
  • Boats float up to the surface quicker.
  • Boats falling down into water lose their vertical momentum much faster.
  • Crashing into soul sand on a boat now kills the player, but keeps the boat intact.

Fixes[edit]

3 bugs fixed

  • Fixed beds not working very well in Multiplayer.
  • Destroying a boat will no longer spawn the player too low, causing them to sometimes fall through the ground.
  • ⇧ Shift+ clicking a tool into a chest no longer restores it to new.
