Minecraft 1.14.3

Another new version of Minecraft was released yesterday. Version 1.14.3 fixes a ton of bugs and reverts some features (such as enchanting) to pre-1.14 behaviour.

Unfortunately, it looks like Minecraft 1.14.3 is causing problems for a lot of players. In particular, the new launcher is not always working as expected. If you're having problems with Minecraft 1.14.3, you probably won't have to wait long for a fix, because 1.14.4 is apparently on its way.

The full list of fixed bugs and reverted behaviours can be found on the release notes page for Minecraft 1.14.3.

The JDRGaming Minecraft server is running version 1.14.3. I've tested it with my own 1.14.3 client, and found no problems. Your mileage may vary. Please let me know if you do run into any new problems.

I learned about Minecraft 1.14.3 via the official Minecraft Discord server, which I configured in my Discord client so that only posts to the game-announcements channel show alerts (otherwise there's a constant flood of alerts as people post to the other channels).

It's also worth noting that the folks who took on management of the Minecraft forum published a post about the new version, and seem likely to continue doing that in the future. The forum does have an RSS feed.
