Update: We released a ‘b’ snapshot to fix a crash that affected some users on launch.

This week’s snapshot brings you the ability to smash out of the window of a high tower building, fly past the bad guys who are all shooting you with surprisingly bad accuracy, swoop down and land flawlessly into a strategically placed boat and then paddle away at moderately high speeds with the stolen prize pig in the back.

I’m not really sure what it all means, though.

Notable changes:

  • Fixed boats.
  • Added reward to End Cities.
  • Broke boats.
  • Improved cheat detection in multiplayer.
  • Fixed boats again.
  • Swoosh.
  • Splash.
  • Oink.

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

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. Back up your world first or run the game on in a different folder (See the “new profile” dialog).

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