Minecraft Nether Update Beta Bastion RemnantSource: Windows Central

What you need to know

  • Mojang Studios is busy finalizing the Nether Update, so that everyone can join in on the fiery fun.
  • Minecraft: Java Edition is currently in Pre-Release, so new builds are almost entirely bug fixes.
  • Pre-Release 7 is a very minor update on top of Pre-Release 6 released June 15, 2020, with some minor fixes to go along with it.

Not even 24 hours after the launch of Pre-Release 6 for Minecraft: Java Edition, we're already getting what could be the smallest Pre-Release build so far, with a tiny number of gentle improvements and issue resolving on top of what we recieved yesterday. Pre-Release 7 doesn't have a long changelog, and was actually rolled into the changelog for Pre-Release 6, highlighting just how iterative these updates are this far into the devolopment cycle.
