    • Before this, the game would output the current FPS and any chunk updates to the developer console.


1 bug fixed

2 bugs reported
  • When a key is pressed down and the game is blurred without being clicked out of, the game will still register that key being pressed.[4] This still occurs in modern Minecraft, making this the game's oldest bug.[5]
  • Some issues reported were low sensitivity, crashing,[6] jerky mouse looking,[7] and low FPS.[8]


  • This was deemed "relatively stable" by Notch, and the URL for the game was posted to other users in the IRC channel.[9]
  • This was the first version of Minecraft to have its code obfuscated.
