New launcher has been released!

6 posts in this topic

Notch has just announced that the new Minecraft launcher has been released! Here is his blog post. The download link is provided in the blog post, but I will re-link you to it in the bottom, incase you can't find it!

Sadly, at the time when I am writing this, they are still having problems with the servers (despite them just being fixed 5 minutes ago, they are down again).


Minecraft.net is suffering some difficulties at the moment, with the database getting overloaded. We’re working hard on fixing the problem.

In the meantime, I’ve uploaded the new game launcher, which you can download from here once the servers are back up and running.

The biggest updates in there are that it shows the latest update news, logs in over https, it asks if you want to update or keep playing on the current installed version, only downloads modified files.

I'm looking forward to seeing it and using it once the servers get their butts in shape! I will post my thoughts then!
