Minecraft 1.20.5 Pre-Release 2

A Minecraft Java Pre-Release

It's the start of a new week and we're coming right out of the gate with another pre-release for Minecraft: Java Edition 1.20.5! Apart from upping our pun-game in the Advancements department, this pre-release also fixes a slew of bugs and crashes.

Happy mining!

New Features


  • Snip it! advancement is renamed to Shear Brilliance


  • Using ctrl+pick block no longer lists "(+NBT)" in the item tooltip


  • The animated Nether Portal texture is displayed when changing dimension to or from The Nether
  • The animated End Portal effect is displayed when changing dimension to or from The End

Technical Changes

  • The Data Pack version is now 40
  • Invalid data in packets sent from a server will now cause the game client to disconnect

Data Pack Version 40

Modified loot functions


Fields explosions and mode have been grouped together as a sub-object

  • { "explosions": <list>, "mode": <mode>, <mode-dependent fields>} becomes {"explosions": {"values": <list>, "mode": <mode>, <mode-dependent fields>}}
  • New explosions field is now optional, while values field inside it is now mandatory
