Full Minecraft Snapshot 14w03b Changelog


Complete changelog:

  • Maybe: A long[8] requested feature[9]
  • A hidden feature[10]
  • The radius value in selectors is now based on the block center[12]
    • A radius of 0 works for exact block positions
  • NBT data in commands can now use block/item names in place of numerical ids[13]
    • Old ids still work, but are being phased out slowly[14]
  • Skins and capes are now distributed through servers[15]
    • Skins server outages will occur less frequently and have less impact[16]
    • Server-altered skins/capes are not possible[17] – only signed URLs[18] are stored server-side
    • Skin changes will no longer require client restarting, at worst re-logging will update the skin for everybody[19]
    • Duplicate skins no longer need to be downloaded twice[20]
    • Server traffic will barely be affected[21]
  • Maybe: Improved the attribute system to implement a buff system accessible with commands[22]
  • /tp can[23] now be used to change players’ rotation
    • Relative changes also supported[24]
    • Example[25] : /tp @a ~ ~ ~ ~180 ~
  • Villagers will now become witches when struck by lightning[26]
  • Village roads will now generate with cobblestone underneath[27]
  • Maybe: Each[28] world (main, nether, end) will now[29] run on its own thread[30]
    • Purpose: Improving performance[31] , not slowing down other worlds when one world is particularly busy[32]
    • First tests indicate massive performance increase[33] when ticking worlds
  • Fixed some bugs
    • Fixed chicken jockeys causing lag and clogging up the mob cap – The chickens no longer lay eggs and despawn with their riders


Mojang said on their website:

Update: 14w03b has been released to fix some bugs & crashes:

  • [Bug MC-44990] – Iron Bars, Regular Glass Panes and Cauldrons aren’t transparent.
  • [Bug MC-44993] – Custom player heads are messed up
  • [Bug MC-45004] – Placing clay pots crashes game
  • [Bug MC-45014] – Realms invited player skins are messed up
  • [Bug MC-45018] – Be killed makes your character lose his/her hat
  • [Bug MC-45026] – Hopper: java.lang.NullPointerException: Rendering screen

Snapshot time! We’ve fixed a whole bunch of bugs introduced in last weeks snapshots, introduced a few new commands and tweaked a few things that needed tweaking.

Notable additions for mapmakers:

  • /tp now supports rotation arguments
  • Player selectors (@p, @e, etc) now support cubic areas. For example: @e[x=0,y=0,z=0,dx=10,dy=10,dz=10] gets all entities between 0,0,0 and 10,10,10
  • Added /clone command to copy large areas to other areas
  • Added a /fill command to fill a large area with a block
