UPDATE: We now have a tutorial on how to install pre-release 5
The guys at Mojang are at it again: pumping out yet another version of the 1.9 pre-release. Some of the new features in Minecraft 1.9 include NPCs, and updated things in the nether like Nether dungeons and new blocks. New features of 1.9 pre-3 specifically are:
- Simplified potion system
- New items and enchantment table (wip)
- Baby animals
This morning, Jeb tweeted out the 1.9 pre-release 3 JAR file which can be downloaded here. The updated JAR file should be placed in your Miencraft bin folder. Only mess with this is you know what you’re doing. To get to your Minecraft bin folder simply visit the folder “Local” then “Roaming” inside your user file in Windows. Then inside the bin file in Minecraft, you’ll see “minecraft.jar”. Rename this to something like “minecraft18.jar because you’ll need this later when the final version comes out. Simply place the 1.9 jar file that Jeb tweeted about inside that bin folder and boot up Minecraft. Everything should be ready to go.
