Snapshot for




13w10b is the fifteenth snapshot for 1.5, and was released to fix some of the bugs and crashes in the 13w10a snapshot.


  • Dispensers and droppers will now only fire once when they receive a redstone signal. To fire again, the signal must be turned off and on again. (Previously a dispenser would fire whenever it had a signal and a nearby block changed.)
