We're now releasing the first pre-release for Minecraft 1.18.1. This will be a fairly small release that will fix a few stability issues and a few bugs. We aim to release this version at the end of next week.

Happy mining!

If you find any bugs, please report them on the official Minecraft Issue Tracker. You can also leave feedback on the Feedback site.

Technical Changes in 1.18.1 Pre-release 1

  • Fixed an issue that would cause players on low-bandwidth connections to get timeout errors when connecting to a server
  • World fog now starts further away from the player, to make distant terrain more visible
  • Instead of applying fog as a spherical volume it is now applied as a cylindrical volume

Bugs fixed in 1.18.1 Pre-release 1

  • MC-219507 - Beacon's power reverts back to previous one on world reload
  • MC-242729 - Observer activating without any updates nearby, caused by /clone
  • MC-243216 - Chunk render distance on servers seems shorter than in 1.17.1
