1.0.0 (known as 1.0 in the launcher), the second release of the Adventure Update, and the first full version of the game, was released on November 18, 2011,[1] during MINECON 2011, marking the game as officially released after two and a half years (916 days) of development. This version adds brewing, enchanting, the End, hardcore mode, breeding and more. It is the last version of Minecraft Markus Persson developed before he gave creative development to Jens Bergensten.

Initially named "Beta 1.9", Mojang Studios instead opted to release this update under the name "Minecraft 1.0.0", but this decision was made after development versions tagged as Beta 1.9 were already released, so all pre-releases for this version are labeled as "Beta 1.9".

  • Originally, this update was planned to be released as Beta 1.9, but after six pre-releases were pushed out, it was decided that 1.0.0 would be the version name, and to push the release date back to during MINECON 2011.
    • The 2014 April Fools joke references the version villagers were implemented in as Beta 1.9, even though they were technically a 1.0.0 implementation.
  • Aside from marking the "true" release of the game, this update is notable for being the last update to be developed by Notch before he left the Minecraft team.
  • This update breaks the naming conventions for top-level release updates. For example, were it to follow the same naming scheme as 1.0.0, 1.1 would be "1.1.0", 1.2 would be "1.2.0", etc. This format is, however, used in Bedrock Edition.
  • 1.0.0 was the only version with release candidates until 1.16.
  • 1.0.0 is the only major update with no snapshots.


  1. Duplicate intended.
  2. Now just called Spawner in Java Edition, but still Monster Spawner in Bedrock.
  3. This change occurred between the last development version for 1.0.0, RC2, and the full release of 1.0.0.
