While this Snapshot may seem to be a bit feature-light, Mojang has been pouring in some hard hours into the plugin API, which isn't too far off on the horizon now! While a good bit of the API is written, it is unstable enough to warrant some extra work before being tested. Don't worry though, it won't be long now! In the meantime, enjoy some sweet new worldgen features, and a potload of bugfixes!
- New highly customisable terrain generation! (Create new world -> “World Type: Customized”)
- New customisable world borders! Check out the /worldborder command.
- Lots of bug fixes, performance gains and code cleaning-upper-izing.
Please report any and all bugs you find in Minecraft to bugs.mojang.com. If nobody reports a bug, they 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.
