Minecraft 1.17 Snapshot 21w10a – Patch Notes

Minecraft is gearing up for one of its biggest updates ever, with the release of Caves and Cliffs later this year. Ahead of the major release, Mojang Studios has been releasing certain features via Snapshots.

Last week, the Minecraft 1.17 Snapshot 21w09a was slated to release. Unfortunately, the developers announced that there will be no snapshot last week. Today, Mojang Studios has released Snapshot 21w10a for Minecraft. This Snapshot adds Lush caves to the game. Apart from that, there are several other bug fixes and improvements that have been introduced as well. Here are the complete patch notes.

Minecraft 1.17 Snapshot 21w10a (Today, March 10) – Patch Notes
A truly fabulous snapshot enters the arena! This snapshot brings fundamental changes to our rendering pipeline with the introduction of the brand new tech that is OpenGL Core 3.2. On top of that, we’re finally introducing the Lush Caves biome. However, as with the Dripstone Caves, this is only available through creating a custom world.

There’s an important note about this snapshot for those of you with older computers: With the introduction of OpenGL Core 3.2 there is a chance Minecraft Java will no longer run on computers that do not meet the minimum system requirements. Computers that meet the minimum system requirements should not be affected.

Added Lush Caves underground biome!
Added Cracked Deepslate Bricks and Cracked Deepslate Tiles
There is now an Infested variant of Deepslate found in the underground
While they will not generate in the world by default, Deepslate versions of copper, emerald and coal ores have been added for use by creators of maps and data packs

The Lush Caves underground biome now exists for use in single-biome worlds. It does not yet generate in other world types.
Moss covers the floors and ceilings
Spore Blossoms grow from the ceiling and drip particles
Contains clay pools with Dripleaf Plants grow out of them
Contains Azalea Bushes and Flowering Azalea Bushes
The Azalea Tree loves to have its roots in lush caves, so if you find an Azalea Tree (either overground or in a cave) you know there is a Lush Cave beneath you
Cave Vines with Glow Berries grow from the ceiling and light up the caves

Cobbled Deepslate can now be smelted into Deepslate
Deepslate can now be placed along any axis
Lightning rods can now be waterlogged
Fossils in the deepest part of the underground generate with Deepslate Diamond Ore instead of Coal Ore
The textures of Deepslate and some of the ores have been updated
Overworld ore generation has been tweaked.

More emeralds in mountains
More lapis
Less copper, gold, and Redstone
Smaller diamond blobs, but slightly more frequent. Less diamond ore overall though
Less iron, and it generates lower down
Reduced air exposure for coal

The game now runs using OpenGL 3.2 core profile
The maximum size that slimes can be summoned with is now 128
The give command can only give up to 100 stacks of items at a time (e.g. 6400 stone or 100 iron swords)
Rendering is now using OpenGL 3.2 core profile. All fixed function rendering has been replaced with shader based rendering.

Shaders are now included for all supported render states. Any shader except for the blit shader can also be replaced in resource packs. For now replacing these shaders is not officially supported and the way it works may change in the future.

The current rendering engine uses a system similar to the post processing shader pipeline. There are some differences between both system that cater to the slightly different requirements.

MC-29318 – Client misses inventory updates while player is manipulating items – causes invisible items
MC-84121 – Shape of glow effect is based on mob’s base layer

MC-212236 – Cannot visually critical-hit a glow squid (No sound/particles)
MC-212314 – Glow squid remains dark even if there is a light source block next to it
