1.4 was a server version of Java Edition Classic released on June 13, 2009,[1] at 13:30 UTC.[2]




  • The server now checks all incoming strings, verifies that they are all within reasonable limits, and kicks the sender if they are not.[1]
  • Server output is now logged in file server.log[4]


  • Fixed an exploit where people could crash everyone connected to a server by sending a fake text message.[1]
    • The client would gladly attempt to render weird unicode characters, but would crash when trying to look up entry ten thousand in a 256 entry array.[1]


Server 1.4 was reuploaded at 14:22 UTC[5] (52 minutes after release) to fix a bug where the player could click outside of the map.[6][7]
