Protocol version


Beta 1.7_01 is a minor update to Java Edition released on June 30, 2011,[1] to fix some of the bugs and crashes in Beta 1.7. This version is not available through the launcher. However it has been archived elsewhere and is available for download.


2 bugs fixed
  • Fixed piston bug.
    • Blocks that used to make the game crash in Beta 1.7 now just get removed by the piston. Crashed worlds are now able to load again.
  • Fixed right-clicking on a sheep empty-handed causing game to crash.


  • This version's patch number is inconsistent with the other Beta 1.7 updates. The patch number for this version is "_01", while the others are ".n", with n being the patch number. Version "Beta 1.7.1" does not exist.
    • This is not the only Beta patch version that does this, with the example of Beta 1.0.2.
    • This is also the last version in Java Edition to use underscores in the version number.
  • This was the last version worked on solely by Notch.
  • This was also the last version to version naming as 1.x_0y.
