It has been suggested that this page be split into Java Edition Classic 0.30 and Java Edition Classic 0.30 (Creative). [discuss]
If this split may potentially be controversial, do not split until a consensus has been reached.
For private development versions of Indev labelled "0.30", see Java Edition Indev 0.31 20091223-1/Development.

0.30 refers to 2 versions of Classic released on November 10, 2009.[1][2][3] The only difference between these two versions is that one version is in Creative mode, while the other is in Survival mode. The creative version was the one featured for free on the Minecraft website before being re-designed. Server versions 1.10 and 1.10.1 were released with these versions. 0.30 is the last version of Late Classic, and the final version of Classic overall to be released.

A 2011 recompiled version of the Creative variant is available in the launcher, mislabeled as 0.30_01c,[4] and is a renewed version of 0.30 Creative. Both have identical gameplay. Another renewed version of 0.30 was said to exist, due to a hash for "0.30_01a" being included in a list of version hashes compiled by Searge. However, this hash is for a texture pack for 0.30, likely included in Mojang's archives by mistake.
