    • Disappears after a while.[4]
  • Glass JE1.jpg (Glass JE1.png recreation) Glass[1]
    • The glass texture in this version is not the same one as appears in a development screenshot.[5] by Notch.[6]
      • It is likely textureless and rather a rendered translucent cube.
      • Glass (inventory) JE1.jpg It does not render in the inventory and when underwater due to the above.[7]
  • Hotbar[1]
    • Visually displays available blocks.


  • Removed sand and cobblestone from the inventory (hotbar) because of a lack of space.[8][1][9]
  • Water and lava now have animated, and slightly different textures.[1][10]
  • Limited frame rate.[1]
  • Generating a new level while on a server, or saving the server level, no longer works.


  • Fixed a client crash bug in chat.


  • Sponges sometimes do not soak up water when placed and removed in certain ways.[11]
  • Water cannot be seen through glass.[12]
  • Water has Z-fighting issues.[13]
