Minecraft snapshot 14w20b

by Dinnerbone on May 15, 2014

Update: Snapshot 14w20b has been released to fix mobs not spawning naturally.

This weeks snapshot brings many bugfixing, a little polishing and possibly even some hugs. Maybe. If you’ve been good.

Notable changes:

  • Caves now generate in deserts & mesas.
  • Added new /title command for ingame adventure-map chaptering.
  • Made tab-list more consistent and a little prettier when using health display objective.
  • Adjusting fly speed of spectator mode now works vertically too.
  • If you’re stuck outside the world border, you can now walk freely to go back inside.
  • Bunch of bugs fixed!
  • Removed the 4th dimension from blocks. This will be a mistake and we were sorry for any inconvenience it will not cause you.

Bugs fixed:

  • [Bug MC-8881] – Mobs treat any layered snow as non-solid
  • [Bug MC-26203] – Scoreboard: player does not appear in sidebar after setting initial score to zero
  • [Bug MC-44331] – Interacting with invalid villagers crashes the game

  • [Bug MC-54381] – /scoreboard players operation – Doesn't work on a player that's not on a scoreboard, but also does work
  • And many more that weren’t on the bug tracker! Did we mention you should report bugs to the bug tracker?

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

To get snapshots, open your launcher and press the “New Profile” button. Call it “snapshots” and check the box saying “Enable experimental development snapshots” and save. To switch to the normal version, you can select it in the dropdown at the bottom left corner of the launcher. Back up your world first or run the game on in a different folder (See the “new profile” dialog).

Snapshots can corrupt your world, please backup and/or run them in a different folder from your main worlds.
