Snapshot 16w07a Ready For Testing!


It's Wednesday, time for a new snapsh-


Wait, it's Monday? Madness! Well, not exactly madness; in the past, snapshots started releasing earlier in the week when it was getting close to a major version's release. We're in the home stretch, and it's time to shore up the last loose threads of 1.9 before it becomes a real live version!


So, what's up for grabs today?

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.
