1.14 Pre-Release 2 is the second pre-release for Java Edition 1.14, released on April 12, 2019,[1] which adds 2 new advancements, a new Mouse Settings menu and increases performance.



  • Added 2 new advancements:



Illager banner
  • Renamed to ominous banner.


  • Sensitivity, invert mouse and touchscreen mode have been moved to a subsection "mouse settings".
  • Added new options scroll sensitivity and discrete scrolling, also in "mouse settings"; these fix MC-123773.
    • Scroll sensitivity is a multiplier for scroll magnitude; the setting was first added in 18w21a but was only accessible by editing mouseWheelSensitivity in options.txt.
    • Discrete scrolling tells the game to ignore scroll magnitude values given by the operating system and instead to act as if the operating system supplied −1 or +1. These will be influenced by the sensitivity afterward if needed.
    • If unwanted scrolling occurs, enable discrete scrolling and set the sensitivity to 1.
  • Improved performance.
  • Added new statistics:
    • Bells rung
    • Interactions with cartography table
    • Interactions with loom
    • Interactions with stonecutter
    • Raids triggered
    • Raids won
