Snapshot 12w19a is Ready For Testing!

Credit to ebrad for the picture!

It’s time for the weekly snapshot. Mojang is continuing to work on separating the client from the server, and has fixed a bunch of stuff related to that transition. What else got added? Check it out below:

  • Added cocoa plants to jungles
  • Added a “large biomes” world type
  • Added specific names for the different sandstone and smooth stone blocks

Improvements continue to pour into each snapshot with every passing week, and the new, improved SSP/SMP system continues to be streamlined, adopting a feel not unlike what MCX360 currently uses to connect players to one-another. Want to try this sleek update out?

Get the snapshot here:

Client: Download here

Server: Download here

The client now comes with both the client-side and the server-side JAR files. The file called “minecraft.jar” should be in your “.minecraft/bin” folder as usual, and the “minecraft_server.jar” file should be in a folder called “.minecraft/server”.
