Meet Minecraft 1.19.30! This release focuses on some interesting changes, including parity and Spectator Mode. As usual, the update was announced by @Mega_Spud on Twitter.

We tried to highlight the most interesting changes, but in fact there are a lot of important things in the update. You can read the full Changelog here.

Main changes

  • Added keyboard shortcuts that allow players to copy either their current coordinates or the coordinates of a block.
    • Ctrl + Alt + C is the default for copying current coordinates.
    • Ctrl + Alt + X is the default for copying coordinates of selected block.
    • Needs the "Enable Copy Coordinate UI" enabled in Creator settings.
  • Music is now included on Android and Fire devices and no longer needs to be downloaded from the marketplace.
  • Dedicated Server: added server property disable-custom-skins to block untrusted skins on a server wide level.
  • The original /locate has been completely merged into the /locate structure sub-command.
    • Changed some structure's names in the /locate structure sub-command to have underscores, like in Java Edition (e.g. ancientcity -> ancient_city); the old names will still work but will no show up in the autocomplete.
  • Player textures and UI elements should no longer turn pink after playing for an extended period time on highly populated servers.

Meme about Pink glitch.

  • Players in Spectator Mode now keep their inventories and equipped items on death.
  • The /testfor command can now target spectators.
  • The Spectator game mode can no longer be entered via the /gamemode 6 command, only via /gamemode spectator.

Vanilla Parity

  • Endermen no longer get angry at Creative players.
  • Modified the fireball entity's collision box to match Java Edition.
  • The enchanting table now produces a sound when enchanting an item.
  • Amethyst blocks no longer produce sound when jumping off of them.
  • Increased sculk shrieker and sculk sensor generation rates in deep dark and ancient cities to better match Java Edition.
  • Modified the cat's head position while sitting to match Java Edition.
