Minecraft 1.2.5 Prerelease: Wild Cats!

A post by the Minecraft development team on the Mojang blog brings us news of the patch 1.2.5 prerelease, available for download now, and the reason for its premature arrival.

Because the 1.2.4 patch included a severe crash bug in the world generator, the developers felt it necessary to officially patch the game again as soon as possible, and then issue the full update a few days later, giving all parties a chance to prepare: developers, modders, and server admins.

Apart from fixes, the most noteworthy changes revolve around felines: ocelots will not longer behave like tame cats, cats will be “less eager to sit on things” and “less patient.”

Full patch notes:

  • Added shift clicking support in furnaces
  • Added method to easily acquire blocks you have selected in the world in Creative mode using the ‘pick block’ key
  • Made the Direct Connect dialog remember the last IP for the current session
  • Fixed issues detected certain links in chat
  • Fixed wild ocelots behaving like tamed cats
  • Fixed various chat crashes
  • Made cats less eager to sit on things
  • Made cats less patient
  • Fixed world generation failing under certain circumstances
  • Fixed issues turning off sound under certain circumstances
  • Removed all ghost entities under the command of Lord Herobrine
  • Fixed crash when pasting certain characters in chat
  • Fixed slash ‘/’ key not behaving correctly in certain environments
  • Fixed command matching being too greedy (for example: typing ‘/stophammertime’ no longer stops your server)
  • Fixed not being able to click coloured links
  • Fixed potential issue with village door detection (which could cause too many villagers)
  • Made using a stack of bowls on Mooshrooms not consume the whole stack of bowls
  • Made punching a TNT block with flint and steel in hand destroy and drop a TNT block (right-clicking will activate the TNT)
