A History Of Minecraft Told By Version Numbers

In the world of software, age is not usually represented by how old the code is in years, but rather by version number. Numbers below 1.o typically represent software before it’s big release. Jumps in front of the decimal place — 2.0, 3.30 and so on — usually represent a large change to the software.

    A very cool infographic, but not everything on this is right. I'm being kind of nitpicky here, but what can I say? I'm kind of a fanatic.
    First of all, colored sheep have dropped colored wool since Beta 1.2. Also, while sort of right on the creeper-skeleton music disc thing, 1.4 was when the last previously unavailable disc became available thru this method. The others have been available that way since 1.1.
    There's a little bit wrong with the picture on 1.4.6: Thorns was the only added enchantment, and Nether Brick was the new slab, not cobble.
    Extreme Hills was not one of the new 1.7 biomes. There was some new technical biome involving EH though.

      Also, the zombie village mention does not show a zombie villager, but a regular zombie.
