The 1.7.3 Pre-Release is here! YAY!

  • Added integrated Twitch broadcasting! See below for details.
  • Fixed render distances above 8 (may not work in multiplayer, servers have their own view distance they limit you to)
  • Many bug fixes and optimizations!

Mojang's very own Dinnerbone had the following to say about 1.7.3:

Dinnerbone said:

At Minecon we announced our new partnership with Twitch to bring one-click broadcasting to Minecraft. It has been in the recent snapshots, and proven to be very stable and ready to go live.

Before you can start streaming, you will need to visit your Mojang account settings and link a Twitch account to your Mojang account. Then in the game you may check the quality settings in Options -> Broadcast Options, or just go ahead and start broadcasting at any time by hitting F6. This key can be configured in the Controls options.

This is only supported on Windows (Vista and higher) and Mac OS X Lion (10.7) and higher. If you cannot start broadcasting ingame for any reason, the game will tell you why and possibly how to fix it.

To get pre-releases, 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.

One-button livestreaming? Bugfixes? Awesome!

Fir-- On a more important note, glad to see a render distance fix, it's most appreciated, along with the various bug fixes and optimizations.

I just received a new computer that is able to max out current games, but struggles with Minecraft. Hope the pre-release fixes some issues I've been having. Also allocating over 1GB ram crashes the game, is that intended? This also probably belongs in a different section sorry.

New pack, thread is not up to date.

Quote me so I can see your reply, or send me a message.

If you don't have 64bit java, the game can't load with more than 1GB allocated.

Ah yes; thank you. I recently saw a post in the suggestions forum about twitch TVs within minecraft, so when I saw this my head about fell off. I should have read it more carefully.
This isn't that complex! Ugh.

Did they fix the texture-flipping glitch/feature, or the glitch that causes multiple songs to play over the top of each other?
