Minecraft snapshot 16w35a

Another week, another snapshot. And another opportunity for me to use that exact same phrase to introduce it.

We are still focused on fixing bugs in the 1.11 snapshots, but Minecon is getting closer and we have some new features to show there.

We made text change to bring the Snooper Data description into line with the updated privacy policy. This refers to the fact that we collect a hashed identifier for your Minecraft account, so we can get an idea of the size of our active userbase. Remember you can always opt out!

Notable changes:

  • Some bugs have been asked to bother another game
  • Most bugs agreed to move on

To get snapshots, open your launcher and press the “New Profile” button. Call it “snapshots” and check the box saying “Enable experimental development snapshots” and save. To switch to the normal version, you can select it in the dropdown at the bottom left corner of the launcher.
