Minecraft 1.8.2-pre1 – Christmas Gift Edition

Happy Holidays

Just in time before the holidays, we have the pre-release for 1.8.2 ready. There are some bug fixes and performance tweaks we wanted to get out to you before most of us leave for vacation during the Christmas holidays.

As always, there are some bugs fixed:

  • [Bug MC-51573] – Hostile mobs continue to follow/attack you in spectator mode
  • [Bug MC-65697] – Explosion force on entities is directionally biased
  • [Bug MC-66089] – Explosion physics changed, range of some TNT cannons greatly reduced

Aside from bug fixes and performance increases this update includes cookies, milk and of course lots of hugs. Don’t open your gifts before Christmas!

The Minecraft team and everybody else at Mojang wish you happy holidays and a great transition into the new year!

To get pre-releases, open your launcher and press the “New Profile” button. Call it “pre-releases” 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. Back up your world first or run the game on in a different folder (See the “new profile” dialog).

The Games Against Ebola Game jam is underway!

Hello, friends.

You’ve probably heard of ebola by now. It’s a terrible disease that’s claimed over 5000 lives in a recent epidemic in West Africa. We’ve known about it for over 40 years, but it’s still considered a serious illness with no known cure.

Despite that, 50% of ebola sufferers do survive, and potential vaccines are currently being tested. Good hospital care and emergency shipments to Liberia, Guinea, and Sierra Leone are vital during this time of need. But they don’t come cheap.

That’s where we can help out! A crew of Mojangstas, along with a few other game developers are participating in a game jam that runs from now until 11AM PST/8PM CET on Saturday. Even better, every smidgen of cash raised goes straight to Direct Relief’s ebola fund. The theme of the jam will be “healing,” for reasons that you can probably work out yourself.

How to donate

All you need to do is donate on humblebundle. By doing that, you’ll get access to every game developed during the Games Against Ebola jam, and help save lives in the process. It’s a massive win-win.

Watch the games being developed

You can also spectate live progress on the development of the games.

Watch the main channel here. It will cycle through the following Mojanger’s feeds: KappischeDinnerboneseargedpkrisjelbring and jbernhardsson.

TL;DR

  • Ebola is a terrible disease that is causing many deaths in West Africa.
  • Money is needed to put a stop to it.
  • Donate to Games Against Ebola to help those in need and get a handful of games to play this Saturday.
  • 100% of your donations go to Direct Relief.

Thanks for reading, everybody.
