We’ve been rewriting a lot of internal stuff this week, so this snapshot may not be super fantastic featureful but trust me it’ll be worth it in the end.

Notable changes for survival:

  • A lot of mob AI has changed. This should mean nothing, but may actually mean something. Don’t sit on slimes.

Notable changes for mapmakers:

  • Added an optional hotkey to show outlines on players whilst spectating
  • It’s now possible to spawn in ItemEntities that can’t be picked up (PickupDelay=32767)
  • It’s now possible to spawn in ItemEntities that won’t expire (Age=-32768)
  • Added an extra argument to /effect that will hide particles
  • Statistics for items/blocks can now be referenced per name, instead of ID
  • Added new objective criteria ‘trigger’, and a command /trigger to use with them (intended for tellraw links)
  • Added the ability to reset a single score on a player through /scoreboard
  • Added new objective criteria for team-specific kills (teamkill.red, killedByTeam.blue)
  • Added the ability to iterate over every scoreboard player with * in /scoreboard commands
  • Added data tag to items to allow placing of certain blocks against other blocks in adventure mode (/give @p stone 16 0 {CanPlaceOn:["minecraft:diamond_block"]})
  • Added data tag to items to hide certain parts of the tooltip (HideFlags, bit field of 1/enchantments, 2/modifiers, 4/unbreakable, 8/candestroy, 16/canplace)

Please report any and all bugs you find in Minecraft to bugs.mojang.com. If nobody reports a bug, we can’t fix it!
