Notable changes for everybody:

  • Added iron trapdoors
  • You can now share to lan for spectator mode only

Notable changes for mapmakers:

  • A resourcepack can now be bundled with a map, put it in the map save directory and name it “resources.zip”
    • Example: ".minecraft/saves/TheMapWithTheThing/resources.zip"
  • The commands /testfor, /testforblock and /clear can now test for partial matches of NBT lists
    • Example: /testfor @p {Inventory:[{Slot:6b,id:"minecraft:diamond_sword"}],SelectedItemSlot:6}
  • Scoreboard objectives for fake players with a name starting with # will never show up on the sidebar
  • New /scoreboard subcommands /scoreboard operation and /scoreboard test
  • The command /scoreboard operation can apply arithmetic operation to scores (+ – * / %) and accumulate player scores
    • Example: /scoreboard players operation #teamscores redScore += @a[team=red] blueKills
  • The command /scoreboard test can be used to test if a scoreboard value is between a min and a max value
    • Example: /scoreboard players test #global anObjective 12 19
  • New command /execute to execute commands in the context and at the position of other entities or players
    • Example: /execute @e[type=Chicken] ~ ~ ~ fill ~-1 ~-1 ~-1 ~1 ~1 ~1 minecraft:glass
  • New selector parameters for entity selectors to detect entity rotations with rxm – x rot min, rx – x rot max, rym – y rot min, ry . y rot max
    • Example: @a[rxm=-15,rx=15,rym=-45,ry=45]
  • Players in team can now have a team based objective shown on the sidebar, depending on the team color
    • Example: /scoreboard objectives setdisplay team.yellow anotherObjective
  • While debug overlay is on (press F3 to turn it on and off), looking at a block in the world will show the coordinates of that block
  • BlockItem instances can now hold a custom NBT tag that is merged into a block entity when it’s placed
    • Example: /give @p command_block 1 0 {BlockEntityTag:{Command:"setblock ~ ~ ~ minecraft:diamond_block"}}
  • In creative mode, players can create a copy of a BlockEntity in their hotbar, including all NBT data, with ctrl+[PICK_KEY] (usually ctrl+middle mouse button)
  • The /tellraw command can now insert values from scoreboards into messages
    • Example: /tellraw @p {text:"Have ",extra:[{score:{name:"Searge",objective:"reward"}},{text:" diamonds"}]}
  • New command /testforblocks to compare two areas of a map
    • Example: /testforblocks 100 64 100 107 69 107 0 64 0 masked
  • Dispensers will place a commandblock instead of shooting it out
  • Nametags for players in other teams can now be hidden with a team option
