0.25_03 SURVIVAL TEST, an implicit retroactive renaming of the third reupload of 0.25 SURVIVAL TEST,[1] so therefore labeled 0.25 SURVIVAL TEST in-game,[2] was a version of Survival Test released on September 3, 2009, at 16:57 UTC.[3] This version is not available in the launcher.

  • 0.25_04 SURVIVAL TEST does not exist. Each patch version of 0.25 SURVIVAL TEST did not change the version number,[1] leading to one user mistakenly changing the wiki version[5] from "0.24_SURVIVAL_TEST_03" to "0.24_SURVIVAL_TEST_04",[6] a version that does not exist, upon the release of this version. Notch saw this and thought that this user was telling him that the unlabelled patches for 0.25 should have labels and that the current version should be "_04", so Notch made the next version "0.25_05 SURVIVAL TEST",[7] even though it is only four versions after 0.25.
