- Explosion force on entities is directionally biased
- Explosion physics changed, range of some TNT cannons greatly reduced
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).
