Minecraft 1.1 Update Now Live

Posted on January 12, 2012 AT 09:20am

THE BUZZ: Developer Mojang has announced that the version 1.1 update for Minecraft is now live.

A trailer has been released to celebrate the update, and a full change list can be found below:

  • Bow Enchantments
  • Golden Apple recipe
  • New language translations
  • Slightly smoothed color transitions between biomes
  • Reduced brewing time to 20 seconds
  • Added spawn eggs to creative (the colors of the eggs even look like the mobs)
  • Added world type options (currently only super-flat and default)
  • Removed collision box from ladders
  • Sheep eat grass and regain their wool

EGM’s TAKE: The addition of world types is a good move by Mojang, and a cool new Golden apple recipe to play around with is none to shabby either.
