Minecraft Snapshot 17w06a

The first snapshot containing 1.12 features

Welcome to the first Minecraft 1.12 snapshot! We anticipate to do many more snapshots in the upcoming months, as we will continue adding more features and make major improvements to the core game itself. This particular snapshot brings you a bunch of new blocks and a very useful addition to Creative Mode. Please remember to make backups of your worlds before loading them in any of the snapshots. An even better option is to always create a new world when checking out the new features!

Changes in snapshot 17w06a

  • Save toolbars in Creative Mode with Ctrl+Slotkey and load them with Shift+Slotkey

Please report any and all bugs you find in Minecraft to bugs.mojang.com. If nobody reports a bug, we can't fix it!

To get snapshots, open your launcher and press the "New Profile" button. Call it "snapshots" 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).

Snapshots can corrupt your world, please backup and/or run them in a different folder from your main worlds.
