Minecraft Java Edition 1.18.1

Minecraft Java 1.18.1 Released

We’re now releasing Minecraft: Java Edition 1.18.1. This release fixes a critical security issue for multiplayer servers, changes how the world fog works to make more of the world visible, and fixes a couple of other bugs.

If you are running a multiplayer server, we highly encourage you to upgrade to this version as soon as possible.

Enjoy!

Technical Changes in 1.18.1

  • Fixed an issue that would cause players on low-bandwidth connections to get timeout errors when connecting to a server
  • World fog now starts further away from the player, to make distant terrain more visible
  • Instead of applying fog as a spherical volume it is now applied as a cylindrical volume

Fixed bugs in 1.18.1

  • MC-152198 - Actual render distance is 2 chunks lower than render distance setting
  • MC-219507 - Beacon’s power reverts back to previous one on world reload
  • MC-229321 - Bees inside of bee hives / nests sometimes despawn when the world is reloaded
  • MC-242729 - “Observer activating without any updates nearby, caused by /clone”
  • MC-243216 - Chunk render distance on servers seems shorter than in 1.17.1
  • MC-243796 - Random non fatal exceptions in console: Failed to store chunk ConcurrentModificationException
