If no major issues are discovered by players or Mojang Studios, Minecraft: Java Edition 1.19.1 will be officially released on Tuesday, June 28, 2022. Then, players will be able to enjoy allay duplication and other improvements in one of PC's greatest games. This ties into Mojang Studios' desire to update Minecraft for "50 years or more," as stated during our interview with Mojang Studios regarding The Wild Update and Minecraft.

The full changelog for Minecraft: Java Edition 1.19.1 Release Candidate 1 includes:

Features & bug fixes

Changes

  • Updated the categories for chat reporting
    • The “Profanity”, “Nudity or pornography” and “Extreme violence or gore” categories have been removed

  • Increased the amount of chat context sent with each chat report

Technical changes

  • The `run_command` click event for text components no longer supports sending chat messages directly
