Want cheap games? The Launcher app is currently a starting point for playing Minecraft: Java Edition, but we envision a future where it will become so much more! It’ll be the home for our future games within the Minecraft universe, and therefore we’ve started the journey of rethinking how the Launcher will work and look. In this beta release we have looked. Jun 09, 2016 More than 7,000 classrooms in more than 40 countries around the world are already using Minecraft in education. Back in January, Microsoft announced that they are going to release a new and expanded version of Minecraft for the classroom called Minecraft Education Edition. Today, they are releasing Minecraft Education Edition beta and it will be released in September.

This is a list of versions for Education Edition. Prior to these versions, Education Edition existed as an official mod called MinecraftEdu.

Hello? Hello? Can anyone hear me? I’m in a newly generated cave and, I’m not saying I’m lost, but I most certainly don’t know how to find my way out. I know I followed a copper ore vein that was deeper than usual and all of a sudden, I’m below one of my saved chunks and here we are. While I try to dig myself out, please enjoy this week’s Bedrock Beta update and send us your feedback at aka.ms/CavesCliffsFeedback and report any bugs at bugs.mojang.com. And if the rest of the Bedrock team asks where I am, just tell them I’m stuck in traffic. They will never let me live this down…

  • Added new world/cave generation when upgrading saved chunks below Y=0 using the Caves and Cliffs experimental toggle
    • Chunks previously upgraded with Bedrock underneath will not see this change
    • For more information, please see our FAQ! We'd love to hear your feedback about it at aka.ms/CavesCliffsFeedback
