Minecraft Java Edition 1.17.1

Minecraft Java 1.17.1 Released

We’re now releasing Minecraft: Java Edition 1.17.1. This release changes some behaviours of the features added in Caves & Cliffs: Part I, and it also fixes a few bugs and critical issues.

Changes in 1.17.1

  • Blue axolotls can now only be obtained through breeding
  • Non-screaming goats now have a rare chance to produce a screaming goat when bred
  • Status effects on goats now also apply when the goat is jumping or ramming
  • Raised the drop rate for copper ingots from Drowned to 11% + 2% per level of looting
  • Powder snow now fills cauldrons 2 times faster than before (still pretty slowly, though!)
  • Zombies, Zombie Villagers, Husks and Drowned will no longer pick up glow ink sacs

Technical Changes in 1.17.1

  • Deaths of named mobs are now logged
  • In case of DNS-based redirection, the client will send the hostname actually used to connect (this restores the pre-1.17 behaviour)
