Minecraft Snapshot 24w14a

A Minecraft Java Snapshot

Hello Minecraft players! Today we have a Snapshot with some technical changes and bug fixes for you.

Technical Changes

  • The Data Pack version is now 38
  • The game now requires Java 21
  • The game now requires a 64-bit Operating System
  • The included Java distribution is now the Microsoft build of OpenJDK 21.0.2

Data Pack Version 38

  • Added replace field to the set_attributes loot function (default: true)
    • When false, attributes will be appended
  • The text field within filterable entries in book components has been renamed to raw to avoid ambiguity
  • The profile component and fields on player head items and blocks respectively now support resolving from a UUID
    • By specifying the id field without a name, the name and textures will be looked up
