What is a Minecraft Version?

Minecraft Versions are different builds of the game, often updated with patches to fix bugs and/or improve gameplay. Each version is named after a certain Minecraft update, but not all updates have their own numbered release that is listed in the column above. When a version is released, it will usually include a new name and a number that corresponds to the order in which it was released.

What is a Minecraft Update?

Minecraft Updates are patches that fix bugs and/or improve gameplay. Not all versions have Minecraft updates, as it is up to the developers to release a new one. Developers have been known to go quite a while without updating anything in the game at times, so don't expect them to release an update for every bug they find.

What is a Minecraft Snapshot?

Minecraft Snapshots are early releases of the new update. They may come with bugs and unintended features. These are given out to get feedback from players about any new features or changes they'd like to see in the next update. Snapshots are often released a couple of weeks prior to a full update in order to give the developers time to fix any bugs that might come up.
