Beta 1.0 is the first version of Java Edition Beta, released on December 20, 2010,[1] which adds a working server-side inventory and includes other changes and fixes.

Additions[]

Gameplay[]

Inventory
  • Working server-side inventory.
  • Tooltips in inventory.
    • When the player hovers the mouse over an item, its name appears.

General[]

Skins
  • Initially known as cloaks
  • Only the Mojang cape existed at the time, but other capes were supported. This can be seen today if a player owns a cape, and a proxy is used to redirect skin requests to the modern server.
Splash
  • Added new splashes:
    • Finally Beta!
    • Woo, reddit!
    • Twittered about!
    • Jump up, jump up, and get down!
    • Joel is neat!
    • A riddle, wrapped in a mystery!
    • Huge tracts of land!
    • Welcome to your Doom!
    • Stay a while, stay forever!
    • Stay a while and listen!
    • Treatment for your rash!
    • "Noun" is an autonym!
    • Information wants to be free!
    • "Almost never" is an interesting concept!

Changes[]

  • Moving too far away from a chest, or having it blow up, closes the inventory screen.
