Snapshot for


15w32b[1] is the fifth snapshot for Java Edition 1.9, which was released to fix some bugs and crashes from 15w32a, along with adding and changing some features.



  • Added /scoreboard players tag ...
    • Players can add and remove tags for any entity based on NBT tags of that entity/player.
      • For example /scoreboard players tag @a add test {OnGround:0b} will add the tag "test" to all players that are in the air.
    • Tags can be accessed by using the parameters after the selector; /give @a[tag=test] stone 1 will give 1 stone to all players that have the tag "test".
    • Players can use /scoreboard players tag <player> list to see what tags are on an entity (Note that in this current version, players can't use tab to get "list").
    • Tags are stored in the playerdata file as strings, not in the scoreboard files.
      • This means that any tag the player binds, has to be bound to an existing online player or an existing entity.
      • Unlike objectives, tags cannot be displayed on the sidebar or anywhere else.
        • Only via the list subcommand can you see which tags an entity has.
  • Added three new objective types: XP, hunger and oxygen.
    • "xp" can be used to track the players exact amount of XP points.
    • "food" can be used to track the hunger level of the player (ranges from 0 to 20).
    • "air" can be used to see for how long the player has been underwater.
      • Starts at 300 (out of water) and then decreases 1 per tick as long as the player's head is underwater (resets when the player exits the water).
      • The water breathing effect freezes the timer and the respiration enchantment slows down the countdown each time more with each level.
World selection screen
  • Now displays a thumbnail per world showing a glimpse of the world (it takes a screenshot when you have just created or opened it for the first time in this snapshot or higher).
    • When the world hasn't been opened in snapshot 15w32b or before, or if the game couldn't make a screenshot thumbnail, there will be a gray-scale image.
    • The thumbnail will be saved in the world folder under .minecraft/saves with the name "icon.png".



Ender dragon
  • The dragon will now fly over the portal and die if the final hit is applied elsewhere.
  • No longer teleport by themselves if NoAI is set to 1.
  • Can now be teleported using /tp or /spreadplayers.

Command format[]

NBT tags
  • Entity tags now work on spawn eggs.
    • The corresponding mob will spawn with the assigned tags.


Creative inventory
  • Removed arrow of splashing.


World selection screen
  • The exclamation mark from last snapshot, indicating that the world has not been played in the current snapshot yet, will now be shown on top of the thumbnail.
    • It will also warn if a world was played in a newer version of Minecraft before, telling the player that the world may corrupt, if they open it in an older version.
      • The version number will now display in red if it has been played in a newer version before.
  • The player can now click the play arrow on the thumbnail, just like a server, to open the world.
