A warning

This snapshot should be considered "fairly experimental, dude". From a scale of 1-10 where 1 is experimental and 10 is stable, this is a tentative 3.

Back up your worlds before trying them in this snapshot. Don't expect worlds played in this snapshot to work in future snapshots. Don't expect worlds played in last weeks snapshot to work in this weeks snapshot.

Resource packs

They broke in last weeks snapshot, but we forgot to update the format number so they didn't warn you in game. We've fixed that and now every outdated resource pack will warn you if you try to use it.

Install the snapshot

Please report any and all bugs you find in Minecraft to If nobody reports a bug, we can't fix it!

To get snapshots, open your launcher and go to the "launch options" tab. Check the box saying "Enable snapshots" and save. To switch between the snapshot and normal version, you can find a new dropdow menu next to the "Play" button. Back up your world first or run the game on in a different folder (In the "launch options" page).

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