Minecraft 1.18.1 available!

While Minecraft 1.18 was released a little over a week ago, Minecraft 1.18.1 is already available bringing various fixes, including a critical server security issue. It is highly encouraged to upgrade your multiplayer servers to this version as soon as possible!

Additions and changes:

  • Fixed an issue where players with low bandwidth would get timeout errors when connecting to a server.
  • The world fog now starts further away from the player, to make distant terrain more visible.
  • Instead of applying the fog as a spherical volume, it is now applied as a cylindrical volume.

[MC-229321] - Bees inside hives/nests sometimes despawn.
[MC-242729] - Observer activates without any nearby updates, caused by the /clone command.
