Unfortunately we managed to include two “null pointer exception” cases in 1.4.6, and we feel they should be patched.

This release is compatible with 1.4.6 and has almost no bytecode changes, so mods that have been updated for 1.4.6 should work in 1.4.7 too. The only affected file is the one called “qz”, which is the arrow projectile’s class. This also means that 1.4.6 clients can play on 1.4.7 servers, and 1.4.7 clients on 1.4.6 servers… so we’ll wait until after New Year’s Eve before we publish it in the launcher. Download the pre-release if you want these problems fixed before then!

The fixes are:

  • Fixed crash related to arrows fired from dispensers
  • Fixed a multiplayer crash when using fireworks without a fireworks star
  • Fixed long timeout when checking SRV records

Happy New Year!

there was a small glitch a noticed in 1.4.6, When a chunk containing a sign unloads, sometimes when it reloads the text doesn't re-appear.

Hm, just small bug fixes this time. I guess that means they're working on other stuff not ready for release yet.
