Minecraft 1.18.2 Release Candidate 1

A Minecraft Java Release Candidate

We’re now releasing the first (and hopefully only) release candidate for Minecraft 1.18.2. This release candidate fixes two world generation bugs that could cause a server to stop running. If there are no major issues following this release, no further changes will be done before the full release, which is planned for February 28th.

Happy mining!

Fixed bugs in 1.18.2 Release Candidate 1

  • MC-244682 - Some custom dimensions settings can cause the server to stop running, but not crash
  • MC-248764 - Some worldgen datapacks can kill the internal server (possibly related to density functions)

Get the Release Candidate

Release candidates are available for Minecraft: Java Edition. To install the release candidate, open up the Minecraft Launcher and enable snapshots in the "Installations" tab.

Release candidates can corrupt your world, so please make a backup and/or run them in a different folder from your main worlds.
