2011 - 2010 - 2009 - 2008 - 2007 - 2006

2.6.9 (2010-01-06)

There's a new main client release. It contains the accumulated changes from the preceding test clients.

This update also brings spring and grasslands in the form of new (old) pack contents.

Changes in 2.6.9-1933

  • Make the pack updater more robust on unreliable connections. Main changes are to retry each piece of a pack individually, and to split up big files if downloading them in one go fails. This should make even the new graphics.jar possible to download inside the client.

Changes in 2.6.9-1942

  • Bugfix: Fix useless error messages for some console commands
  • Bugfix: Fix three more causes of disco water
  • Add data validation to the pack updater to detect corruption / modification during transfer. Add a "retry" button for when the update fails. Add a "full recheck" button to scan all the packs for previously missed errors and corruption.
