Minecraft 1.20 Patch Notes: Latest Pre-Release Updates & Changes

Posted on by brandon
As we near the final release of the Minecraft Trails and Tales Update, or Minecraft 1.20, we're winding down the days with plenty of Snapshot and Pre-Release updates that are making the final adjustments. With new bug fixes and tweaks coming nearly every week, here are all the latest Minecraft 1.20 patch notes along the road to launch.

Minecraft 1.20 Patch Notes: Latest News

We finally have a definitive release date for the Minecraft 1.20 update, which will launch on June 7th! Throughout its development, Mojang has released plenty of content from the upcoming update so that players can test out its features piece by piece. This includes dozens of snapshot updates leading up to a series of Minecraft 1.20 pre-release updates that are still going on today. With that, here are all of the latest Minecraft 1.20 patch notes from the latest Snapshot and Pre-Release updates so far.

Minecraft 1.20 Pre-Release Patch Notes

On the path to a new update in Minecraft, Snapshot Updates take on the role of introducing massive new features and tweaks. Once this process is complete, Mojang begins to release pre-release updates that focus more on fixing bugs and slight changes than major shifts. This is the part of the development process that Minecraft 1.20 is at now, and you can check out the latest tweaks in the patch notes of its pre-release updates below! Minecraft 1.20 cherry blossom biome Here are the combined patch notes for all of the Minecraft 1.20 Pre-Release updates so far: Minecraft 1.20 Pre-Release 7 - (5/29/23) Changes To improve safety, the game will now detect symbolic links used inside world directory.For a detailed explanation, check our help article.
  • If the target of a symbolic link is not on the user-configured allow-list, the game will not proceed with loading the world
    • Note: world directory itself can still be linked
  • The list of allowed symbolic link targets is stored in file allowed_symlinks.txt in client or server top directory
  • The file consists of entries (one per line) with following formats allowed:
    • Lines starting with # are comments and are ignored
    • [type]pattern, where type can be globregex or prefix
      • prefix matches start of path with given pattern (so for /test paths /test/test/ and /test/foo.txt would match)
      • regex matches regular expression against whole path
      • glob uses OS-specific path matching mechanism (for example *.txt would usually match files with txt extension)
      • Note: paths will use OS-specific separators
    • pattern, which uses default prefix type
