A Minecraft Java Release Candidate

We’re now releasing the first (and hopefully only) release candidate for Minecraft 1.18.1. This release candidate fixes crashes and bugs. If there are no major issues following this release, no further changes will be done before the full release.

Happy mining!

Edit: We've now released 1.18.1 release candidate 3, fixing a critical security issue.

  • MC-245010 - Sometimes certain chunks will never load

Fixed bugs in 1.18.1 Release Candidate 1

  • MC-229321 - Bees inside of bee hives / nests sometimes despawn when the world is reloaded
  • MC-243796 - Random non fatal exceptions in console: Failed to store chunk ConcurrentModificationException
  • MC-244190 - Entity fog doesn’t match the fog of blocks around them
