Minecraft 1.8.2? yes this official update will be published in the launcher on this month. New info this week on the upcoming 1.8.2 update with the first pre-release hinting at Christmas secrets for the holiday break, as well as Dinnerbone’s new and improved Minecraft launcher & the exciting announcement of episodic adventures Minecraft: Story Mode from Telltale Games. These changes consist of both new features, and large game structure changes such as replacing the hard-coded “block renderer” with a system that is able to read block shapes from data files, or performance enhancements such as multi-threading the client-side chunk rendering.
Some bugs fixed:
- Hostile mobs continue to follow/attack you in spectator mode
- Explosion force on entities is directionally biased
- Explosion physics changed, range of some TNT cannons greatly reduced
