  • This was the last Minecraft version before the Texture Update, when most of the blocks, items and mobs were implemented brand new textures created by the artist Jasper Boerstra.
    • After the Texture Update, the original textures are still available as an in-game resource pack named "Programmer Art".
    • This was also the last version where the pack.png image was used as the default resource pack icon.
    • This was also the last version to use the "-pre" notation for pre-releases.
  • This version came out exactly two months after previous minor update.
