Release date

May 16, 2009





0.0.2a[1] was the first version of Classic released on May 16, 2009, at 16:52 UTC,[2] which added a version number and fixed some issues with the mouse look.



Version number[2]
  • Located in the top-left corner.
  • Added a frame rate and chunk update counter
    • Located in the top left corner, below the version number.
    • Before this, the game would output the current FPS and any chunk updates to the developer console.


1 bug fixed
  • Fixed more issues with mouse looking.[3]


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.


  1. TigIRC logs: "(13:05:07) notch: does it say "0.0.2a" in the top left corner of the applet?" [...] "(13:08:05) notch: dock: If you have the courage to run it again, i'd love to know if you get version 0.0.2 and what the mouse look is on in there.." [...] "(13:08:31) fartron: i have 0.0.2a now" [...] "(13:08:41) dock: yes this is 0.0.2a"

  4. TigIRC logs: "(13:23:42) notch: so if you walk forwards and tab out, it should keep walking forever. Which is a bug."
  5. MC-886, resolved as "Invalid" because it is an issue with LWJGL.
  6. TigIRC logs: "(13:28:39) Dragonene: notch: it's damned sweet, but it's unplayable because of the low sens, and it crashed the browser on exit"
  7. TigIRC logs: "(13:29:31) Dragonene: FPS is fine but looking around is really awkward" [...] "(13:29:53) Dragonene: jerky and slow"
