Minecraft 1.16.5 Official Download is a minor update to Java Edition released on January 15, 2021, which fixes issues related to server crashes. This release is network compatible with 1.16.4 – this means you do not need to upgrade your game right away to play on an upgraded server.

There are two bug fixes in this update, both of which address server crash issues, but the devs are keeping the details quiet for security reasons. (If you’re already testing the 1.17 Caves and Cliffs snapshot, be aware that attempting to roll back to this one will corrupt your save.). “We hope to release another Caves and Cliffs snapshot next week,” the devs add on Reddit. Each new snapshot introduces one or more new features that’ll be included in the final update – the most recent, for example, introduced the Minecraft axolotl.
