Update: Snapshot 14w26c has been released to fix broken block IDs, world generation in the nether and the end and some more bugs.
Update: Snapshot 14w26b has been released to fix some chunk loading issues.
If you are updating from 14w26a or 14w26b, your saved world has corrupted blocks and it will be heavily damaged once you open it in 14w26c. Please use a world backup that was saved with a pre-14w26 version.
Never use snapshots without first making backups of your saved worlds.
Wednesday is the new Thursday! We’ve decided that Thursday wasn’t very optimal for us to release snapshots on so we’ve moved the weekly snapshots to Wednesday instead. Adjust your schedules and order a new calendar!
Last weeks snapshot was quite volatile, we’ve been working hard this week on fixing bugs and adding new ones in their place. There may not be many cool features, but this weeks snapshot comes with some optimizations, bug fixes and even more rewrites bringing us closer to the plugin API!

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).
