For Minecraft: PE v0.9.5 alpha

This is the fourth beta for 1.4. From now on, beta builds will be released faster with less changes between them, So we'll focus on adding new features on each build. New features will be buggy, but we hope to receive feedback to fix them soon. Old features will be more stable on each build.

This beta changes the API version to 1.3.0 (backwards-compatible), improving level chunk sending and adding new plugin events for developers. All plugins that target older APIs are compatible and do not need changes. If your plugin works on older API versions, please do not set the API version to 1.2.0, that will only refuse to load where it can work.

Main features:

  • Improved player movement
  • Fixed player actions lagging behind the server
  • Implemented circular chunk sending / view distance
  • Generation works correctly with multiple worlds
  • Creative and survival hotbar works better
  • Better wooden tool crafting
  • Players will drop their inventory on death
