Minecraft: Minecraft 1.8.2-pre1 – Christmas Gift Edition

Happy Holidays


Just in time before the holidays, we have the pre-release for 1.8.2 ready. There are some bug fixes and performance tweaks we wanted to get out to you before most of us leave for vacation during the Christmas holidays.


As always, there are some bugs fixed:



  • [Bug MC-51573] – Hostile mobs continue to follow/attack you in spectator mode

  • [Bug MC-65697] – Explosion force on entities is directionally biased

  • [Bug MC-66089] – Explosion physics changed, range of some TNT cannons greatly reduced


Aside from bug fixes and performance increases this update includes cookies, milk and of course lots of hugs. Don’t open your gifts before Christmas!


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).
