1.11-pre1 is the first and only pre-release for Java Edition 1.11.[1]



  • Changed the front (detecting side) texture to be an "observing face".
    • Same texture is used for facing up and down, although facing down: points with the top of the face towards north, and when facing up: points with the top of the face towards south.
    • The texture is a hybrid of the rejected observer texture (Observer (front texture) pBE20160502.png) for Pocket Edition, and the previous texture.
  • Redstone output side now blinks when it outputs power.


Enchanted books
  • Curse of Vanishing, Unbreaking III and Mending now appear in the tools as well as the combat tab of the Creative inventory.


  • Added a warning message for players using Java 7 or prior.
  • Cleaned up translation files to no longer use %d.
