Minecraft 1.4.2 Pre-release!

Busy day on the Mojang blog indeed! Don't forget to check out the other posts for info on the bug tracker, Minecon and our Pretty Scary Screenshot competition!

However, I need to inform you that we've uploaded a 1.4.2 version of Minecraft. This version will be released in the launcher tomorrow morning (Central European time zone). What we fixed was,

  • Fixed a severe memory leak in the server. Big thanks to Rickard Ã…berg and John Marzano for helping me locate this problem.
  • Corrected rendering of fences and cobblestone walls

Again, for clarity:

  • Release date: Thursday October 25
