RC1 is the first release candidate for Java Edition 1.0.0, released on November 13, 2011,[1] which adds durability to bows, sounds to some mobs, the player, tools and armor, adds some new splashes, and fixes some bugs.



  • The Player:
    • Damage to player sound was changed to a genderless bone-cracking sound.
    • Eating and drinking now have sounds.
  • Mobs:
  • Players and all mobs make the same bone-cracking sound when taking fall damage.
  • Arrow landing was changed to a more twangy sound.
  • Tools and armor now make a breaking sound, and have a breaking animation.

Main Menu

  • Added 28 new splashes and changed 7 of them.


  • Changed redstone wire placement on one block from a "+" to a "•" shape.
  • Bows now have a durability bar, with 385 uses.
  • Bows can be fired without having arrows in Creative mode.
  • Thrown eggs now hatch baby chickens.
  • "Quit Game" button now appears regardless of how you launch the game.


7 bugs fixed

  • Error with the shadowing of the right side of blocks in the inventory is now fixed, being back to what it was in Beta 1.7.
  • Fixed wooden door bug from Beta 1.9 Prerelease 6
  • The "Particles" option no longer overlaps the warning when playing on far render distance with a 32-bit Java installation.
  • Fixed the bug that caused the player's experience level to revert to 0 again after The End credits are finished from Beta 1.9 Prerelease 6.
  • The full names of Scaevolus and Hippoplatimus are now used in the ending credits.
  • The player can now chat while entering a portal in multiplayer.
  • Obsidian's mining time was increased to 8 seconds from ~3 seconds in 1.9 Prerelease 6.


  • When RC2 was initially uploaded, the changing of the version number to RC2 was forgotten, causing it to be displayed as RC1.[2] This was later fixed in a reupload.[3]
