Minecraft 1.7.4

It’s time for an update

Changelogs:

  • Added Twitch.tv broadcasting integration (see below)
  • Improved Realms menus
  • Fixed render distance above 8
  • Various bugs have been taken care of

To use the Twitch broadcasting you need to link your Mojang account with your Twitch account. This only works with migrated accounts (in other words, if you login using your email address instead of your username, you can use the Twitch integration). The linking is done via the account settings, which can be found here:

https://account.mojang.com/me/settings

To start broadcasting, simply press F6 while playing. You find more options in the menus.

The integration currently only works on Windows Vista or later, and on Mac OS X Lion (10.7) or later.

Minecraft 1.7.4 Download Links:

Minecraft for Windows

Download Minecraft.exe. Place it anywhere you want, then run it.

Minecraft for Mac OS X

Download Minecraft.dmg. Unpack and place Minecraft in your /Applications folder.

Minecraft for Linux / Other

Download minecraft.jar. The jar is executable and might work as-is. If you run into memory issues, try launching it with java -Xmx1024M -Xms512M -cp minecraft.jar net.minecraft.LauncherFrame, also please use Sun’s JVM.

Multiplayer Server

If you’re running on Windows and just want to set up a server easily, download Minecraft_Server.exe (Mirror Download) and run it.

If you want to run the server on any other OS or without GUI it’s a bit more involved. First make sure you can use java from the command line. On Linux and Mac OS X this should already be set up but on Windows you might have to tinker with the PATH environment variable. Download and run minecraft_server.jar with java -Xmx1024M -Xms1024M -jar minecraft_server.jar (Mirror Download) nogui.
