Hey everyone!

We just released MCPE 0.9.5, another bugfix version for 0.9. This time, it may or may not be the last, but we hope so!

We found and squashed many nasty bugs still hiding in the very fabric on the game, so 0.9 should be now quite stable. Here are the bugs we fixed:

update: on Android, we released another version of 0.9.5 (0.9.5b? 0.9.5 bis? 0.9.5.2? whatever) which fixed a new crash and a few additional bugs. For iOS/Amazon users, this should change nothing!

– (Android) fixed a really nasty bunch of problems caused by locking the device like freezing, crashing, corrupting the world and more
– (Android) fixed a bad graphics corruption issue (missing chunks, corrupted chunks and animals) that happened when switching away from the game
– fixed chunks not loading in multiplayer when the client device is slower than the server
– fixed a crash when loading flat worlds after updating from 0.9.0/2
– fixed a possible server crash when a player disconnects from a multiplayer world
– fixed a possible crash or corruption when playing in multiplayer as a client
– Fixed Bryce Mesa biome, now they actually spawn!
– fixed fountains’ water in strongholds
– fixed some small artifacts items held in hand (torches, etc) and clouds
– (Fire TV) fixed missing textures

And we made a few tweaks, too:

– Players that have been placed at extreme heights by the respawn bugs are now placed back at y=130
– (Android) the game doesn’t waste battery power and really stops rendering now when in the background
– not getting stuck anymore in the “Looking for Server” screen if the server is full
– animals are never despawned, again

We’ve just uploaded this version to every store, so it should be out on Google Play soon and on Apple, Amazon and Samsung stores soon-ish!

Jens – @jeb_, Johan – @jbernhardsson, and Tommaso – @_tomcc

Update: We’ve released snapshot 14w30c to fix some more crashes, world holes, other bugs and more optimizations.

It’s apparently my birthday today, so you get a present! That’s how birthdays work inside Minecraft.
Todays snapshot is heavily focused on more optimizing, with a pinch of bug fixing and a sprinkle of feature creeping. I think you’ll like it!

Notable changes:

  • Made Creeper, Skeleton and Zombie Heads available in survival. How? Don’t ask me!
  • Major optimizations to client rendering. It’s magical!
  • Lots of fun bugs fixed. Lighting should behave a little nicer now!
  • Crafting cuddles now requires one extra hug in the recipe.
  • [Bug MC-7508] – lighting error due to Chunk.heightMap ignoring block at the top level of an ExtendedBlockStorage instance (off by 1 error)

Hello!

We just released a new Pocket Edition version to Google Play, 0.9.3!
This version fixes some last nasty bugs that we introduced in 0.92:

– fixed several crashes that prevented from playing in multiplayer
– fixed a nasty bug that on death might hang the game and/or spawn you really up in the sky
– on Android, you can get more than 3 levels of view distance again
– the game now handles when a world is corrupted and not repairable showing an error screen
– Creepers don’t spam weird sounds anymore
– mobs won’t spawn anymore in peaceful, and existing ones will be removed
– correctly despawning entities on clients
– fixed soft shading on wool tiles
– possibly fixed other lock-ups and crashes

We are going to wait and see how it works before submitting it to App store and Amazon store but we hope to do that tomorrow. Most of the issues should now be fixed but please report things if they break!

Update: We can never be sure if bending space around time is the right approach until we get feedback from you on the 14w29b snapshot that bends time around space instead. We do that by using the newly implemented threaded render batch system. That’s a lot a fancy sounding words, so if you don’t know what that means, it should improve performance even more. Or crash horribly. But without your feedback, we’ll never know which one is true.

So here it is, the 14w29b update…

Fixed in this snapshot:

  • [Bug MC-62116] – Players loses CommandStats{} after Death
  • [Bug MC-62134] – #players are taking up space on the sidebar display

— 14w29a update notes —

This snapshot contains a lot of optimizations specifically targeting render performance. If your system supports it, you can select VBO in the video setting. This enables Vertex Buffer Objects and should increase your fps by 5% to 10% on average. We are especially interested on feedback on performance related issues with this snapshot.

Last week we compressed time and space, that did not work too well for the snapshot. So this week we will try something else and bend space around time. Apart from these highly experimental changes, we also did this:

  • [Bug MC-71] – Mobs don't spawn next to water streams if the x and z coordinates are negative
  • [Bug MC-267] – Potion effect status doesn't show If the inventory was open when it was cast upon the player.
  • [Bug MC-393] – Starvation prevents sleeping in bed on peaceful.
  • [Bug MC-404] – Viewing a map while invisible still shows both hands holding it
  • [Bug MC-455] – Standing on exact X.0 Z.0 coordinates prevents breaking/placing block in North West
  • [Bug MC-486] – Zombies and Skeletons don't burn on slabs
  • [Bug MC-506] – You can make smooth sandstone into smooth sandstone
  • [Bug MC-665] – Minecarts and TNT are not moved by water currents
  • [Bug MC-676] – Signs and chests do not display cracking animation
  • [Bug MC-49041] – Teleporting with rotation might twist your head
  • [Bug MC-53033] – Unable to disable nameTagVisilibity for someone in spectator mode
  • [Bug MC-57516] – CanPickUpLoot and CustomNameVisible not Working
  • [Bug MC-59052] – Cannot add fake players or named entities to scoreboard teams
  • [Bug MC-59602] – Hoppers/Dropper can't take water bucket out of furnace
  • [Bug MC-59634] – You get the message "Your game mode has beed updated" even when sendCommandFeedback = false
  • [Bug MC-59946] – Iron trapdoors appear on the opposite side of where they are placed when open (east/west orientation)
  • [Bug MC-60279] – Detector rails render as unpowered, even when powered
  • [Bug MC-61033] – Particle command don't work
  • [Bug MC-61451] – Frame-rate drop in 14w28b
  • [Bug MC-61453] – /title command writing errors on the server log
  • [Bug MC-61505] – Mob Spawners count min/max spawn delay with a rate of 10 instead of 1
  • [Bug MC-61519] – Chests that should be oriented east/west are oriented north in desert temples
  • [Bug MC-61577] – CommandStats are not used when a command sign is right-clicked by non-OPs
  • [Bug MC-61586] – Client freezes for ~1 second in multiplayer when opacity of a block changes next to unloaded chunk
  • [Bug MC-61666] – cannot setblock or fill ender chests
  • [Bug MC-61711] – Sidebar Scoreboard shows the lowest scores and not the best when hitting the limit of the sidebar

Hello!

We just uploaded Minecraft pocket edition 0.9.2 to Amazon, Appstore and Google Play. We even skipped the 0.9.1 version on Appstore since it had not been released yet. This new version fixes a lot of issues with 0.9.1.

Bug Fixes

  • biomes were not set correctly causing multiple crashes all around the game
  • fixed the grass color and added code to fix existing corrupted worlds
  • fixed a crash happening when killing a parent with kids
  • worlds don’t stop loading anymore when encountering a Stronghold
  • fixed a crash in the Furnace Screen
  • tiles are not be randomly immune to explosions anymore
  • fixed a possible crash in the chunk streaming engine
  • the game saves events happening before shutting it down more reliably
  • Creepers don’t explode after dying/too fast anymore
  • spiders don’t get stuck on ceilings anymore
  • mycelium spreads correctly
  • fixed the armor screen rendering, it won’t show items that have been worn already
  • entities (and the player) will not enter unloaded chunks anymore, preventing jittering

Tweaks

  • the game spawns way less mobs, and despawns older mobs
  • increased the health of all mobs to PC values
  • low-end devices get a warning when trying to create an infinite world
  • the game will try to fix corrupted levels before giving up now
  • fixed the size of the progress indicator when hitting a block

Bug fixed in 0.9.1 (Apple users will receive these fixes in 0.9.2)

– Fixed a huge memory leak affecting all devices
– saving chunks correctly when only block brightness changes
– fixed a crash when tapping empty slots in the crafting grid
– fixed monster eggs not spawning mobs when difficulty is set to Peaceful
– entities on fire don’t crash the game anymore
– fixed a potential game lock-up when quitting a world
– single core devices will now show the loading screen too
– reduced RAM consumption by some ~10 mb
– fixed a potential crash with Mob Spawners
– fixed a random crash in the movement code
– mob spawners save the mob type they have been configured to spawn
– fixed a crash on application shutdown

We hope to get them out to you as soon as possible. :)

We’re starting to enter the last phase of our development cycle for 1.8, and so we’ll be focusing on finalizing features, fixing bugs and optimizing the game over the next few weeks as we draw a little closer to something we’d like to eventually consider releasable. Todays snapshot is one such example, bringing (hopefully) some big optimizations to the server and client, a few less bugs to worry about, and a handful of hugs in their place.

Notable Changes:

  • Servers can now customise network compression in server.properties
  • The new block model format for resource packs can be considered stable and ready to use.
  • Enchantments and effects now accept names instead of arbitrary IDs.
  • Alternative (random) block models specified by resource packs can now be disabled in Video Settings.
  • Many optimizations to both the server (including singleplayer) and the client.
  • Less bugs!
  • Compressed space and time.
