  • some bug fixes
  • and many more

New in version 1.7.9 (April 15th, 2014)

  • Bug fix:
  • [MC-52817] - "Add player" packets and "Remove player" packets being sent out of order

New in version 1.7.8 (April 11th, 2014)

  • Bug fixes:
  • [MC-52668] - Player skulls UUID compatibility incomplete (NBT tag SkullOwner was of wrong type)
  • [MC-52673] - Invert mouse setting defaults when closing and reopening
  • [MC-52718] - Minecraft skin problems recent with 1.7.7
  • [MC-52755] - Staying on a server for more than 24 hours crashes everyone

New in version 1.7.7 (April 10th, 2014)

  • Skins and capes are now distributed through servers
  • Support for name changing (Only the support for changing names, actually being able to change names will come after 1.8 release)
  • The Server Resource Packs option is now per-server
  • The minimum setting for the FOV option is now 30 instead of 70
  • Not backward compatible with Minecraft 1.7.2 - 1.7.5

New in version 1.7.6 (April 10th, 2014)

  • This version contains some bugfixes, a few updates to make Realms even better than it already is and prepares Minecraft for the renaming feature that will eventually allow you to rename your player. The renaming feature will not be available right now, but this is an important step towards it. We have also changed the internal handling of player skins to make use of our new, improved skin servers.
  • Unfortunately the 1.7.6 version is not compatible with 1.7.5 (or earlier) servers. Please update your servers to 1.7.6, this is also an important step to prepare them for the upcoming 1.8 release. Servers should automatically update all player profiles to the new format, but please make sure that you are in the correct server mode (online mode/offline mode) when you start the 1.7.6 server for the first time, because profiles are not compatible between these two server modes.
