What’s this? A spooky surprise 1.13.2 pre-release? We didn’t even snapshot them! This is a very small pre-release to address a few performance issues and upgrade issues left over from 1.13.1. If all goes well with this pre-release, we will do the full release on Thursday.  Don’t worry though, snapshots for 1.14 will be starting really soon!

A full changelog for this pre-release can be found on Minecraft.net.

CHANGES IN 1.13.2-PRE1

  • Improved performance of upgrading worlds
  • Improved startup time
  • Improved performance of turtle pathfinding
  • Improved mob spawning performance
  • General other performance improvements
  • MC-134115 – Containers next to chunk borders can lose items when upgrading
  • MC-91621 – Mobs repetitively despawn and respawn rapidly at high Y coordinates (causing lag)

To get pre-releases, open your launcher and go to the “launch options” tab. Check the box saying “Enable snapshots” and save. To switch between the snapshot and normal version, you can find a new dropdown menu next to the “Play” button. Back up your world first or run the game on in a different folder (In the “launch options” page).


Please report any and all bugs you find in Minecraft to bugs.mojang.com.


Pre-releases can corrupt your world, please backup and/or run them in a different folder from your main worlds.
