More snapshots, less problems! This particular snapshot has a heavy focus on old performance-dropping bugs, almost as old as the game itself. Specifically, memory leaks! There are some more adjustments to combat as well, and a few new additions to command blocks.
UPDATE: Even before I could finish writing this article, 35b was released! It includes a minor fix for zombie clothes.
- Fixed the "vanishing chunks" problem
- Fixed some old memory leaks in the client
- Put some clothes on the zombies. They may be post mortal, but that’s no reason to be indecent
- Slight re-balancing of tools & weapons
- Even more experimental performance enhancements. Guaranteed to break at least one heart
- New command block features!
- [Bug MC-45763] – Some blocks are facing the wrong way if placed in an Item Frame
- [Bug MC-86925] – Running out of memory when exiting
- [Bug MC-86937] – Empty Chunks duplicate one-another and cause weird behaviour
- [Bug MC-87050] – (2 bugs in one) Glitch with adding attributes to items in 1.9
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 literally cause the apocalypse, so back up your old worlds before testing. Report any and all bugs you find in Minecraft to bugs.mojang.com. If nobody reports a bug, then evil wins!
