Beta 1.17.20.22 is the third beta version for Bedrock Edition 1.17.20, released on July 14, 2021,[1] which made mob spawning changes behind experimental toggle, and fixes bugs.

Changes[]

Blocks[]

Light Block
  • Light blocks now reveal a particle when the player is holding the item.
    • Unlike in Java Edition, the respective item texture is used as the particle instead of four yellow stars.

Mobs[]

Axolotls
  • Axolotls now spawn only where there's a stone block less than 10 blocks below the spawning space.

General[]

Difference of the old logo and the new logo of the loading screen.

User Interface
  • Slightly changed the Minecraft logo of the loading screen.

Technical[]

Commands
  • Target selectors ry and rym now support wrapping around north
Spawning
  • Similar to the spawns_on_block_filter, the spawns_above_block_filter specifies a list of blocks and a distance.
    • The mob can then spawn only if the nearest block within the specified distance below the desired spawnpoint is in that list (water and air not included).
