Minecraft 1.5.2 gives Endermen fewer excuses to be hostile, is out now

After the volcanic eruption that was The Redstone Update, the bubblings to emerge from Mojang since have inevitably been a tad underwhelming. Even so, there’s a good chance you’ll notice at least a couple of the changes wrought by Minecraft 1.5.2 once you boot up the game today.

Jeb and co. have squashed a recent bug that saw Enderman rendered hostile if they took environmental damage, rather than directly from the player. They’ll now need a really good reason to turn on you. Moreover, tamed wolves and cats have been prevented from despawning willy nilly, and a couple of glitches that had Anvils offering their services for free are now history.

What’s more, arrows will now visualise appropriately when shot into blocks - they’d sometimes appeared to ‘float’ nearby - and jukeboxes will retain their consistent, pleasant volume.

You might also feel the benefits of frame-rate improvements while using high-res texture packs, as many of you are wont to do. If you haven’t experimented in that area yet, why not browse our recommendations of the 15 best Minecraft texture packs and pick one for yourself?

Here's the full list of bugs shown the door:

  • Jukebox audio volume doesn’t decrease
  • SMP: Anvils charge level for nothing when using languages other than English
  • Tamed wolves and cats despawn
  • Endermen are rendered hostile if they take environmental damage
  • Pick-Block and Furnaces
  • Achievement "Hot Topic" Uses Faceless Furnace Icon
  • Using the anvil for free
  • Arrows visually float when shot into a block.
  • Improvements to FPS when using high-resolution texture packs
  • Many Realms fixes.
