The pre-release for 1.5.1: Minecraft 1.5.1 Pre-release
Planned for release on Thursday.


Note that if you substitute the digits for previous versions, you can probably legally get them from Mojang as well.


Main features:

  • Fixed a bunch of bugs
  • Improved performance
  • Notable: Falling blocks no longer glitch one step
  • Notable: White stitching between blocks should be less frequent
  • Notable: Crash on Mac OS X on “OpenGL Function Not Supported”
  • Notable: Unable to place paintings

Good idea.

You can actually go to http://assets.minecraft.net, which will give you an xml document of all the contents. You can easily search for things like 1_4_7 to see what is available. I did for example find Minecraft_Server.exe, minecraft.jar and minecraft_server.jar for 1.4.7.

Ah, thanks DaedalusAlpha. I have been wondering how consistent they have been for previous versions. It seems that they still have most of versions since the 1.0 release, but not the Alpha or Beta versions. Now that I know that, we might have to add this to the stickies.

Would you believe there are still servers who like to play Beta 1.7.3.

Sorontar

ps. thanks to those who had previously pointed me to specific past versions

A new snapshot and the first that requires a new launcher snapshot: Minecraft Snapshot 13w16a and New Launcher

To get the snapshot, use the new launcher available in the link below. To return to 1.5.1, simply start the old launcher and play as normal.
Server files:
Minecraft 1.6 is going to have a number of changes, so I'll let Jens explain it:
Quote:
This version of Minecraft comes with huge changes to the base technology of the game. For instance, starting from Minecraft 1.6, we will build the game for Java 6 instead of Java 5. We are also aiming to raise the required OpenGL version to 2.0 (from 1.2 / 1.3, that Minecraft 1.5 and prior versions are using). Additionally we are working on a new launcher that will support these libraries, and also come with a bunch of new features such as version changing, detailed game settings, and so on.

...

This snapshot in bullet point form:
  • Added horses, based on the work of John Olarte (DrZhark), of Mo’ Creatures fame
  • Added hay bales
  • Added leashes
  • Added carpets
  • The “Respiration” enchantment now also helps seeing underwater

More elaboration on what you can do with the equines: Version history/Development versions - Minecraft Wiki

Quote:
  • Added horses
    • Ridable by right-clicking them - Hold the jump key to fill up their jump bar, release it to jump accordingly, steer them by using the usual movement keys - maximum movement speed and jump height differ between horses
    • Have various amounts of maximum health - Use wheat and carrots to heal them
    • Drop leather when killed
    • Can be bred using wheat - Baby horses can be grown using apples, golden apples and wheat
    • Players can make them jump by holding and pressing the space bar
    • They naturally 'jump' over 1 block, which enables you to walk up hills
    • They can also use ladders, when steered towards them
    • Creation assisted by DrZhark (Creator of Mo' Creatures)
  • Added donkeys
    • Like horses, but can carry chests on their saddles although no inventory is currently available
    • Mules can be obtained by breeding a Donkey and a Horse
    • There is a Undead and Skeleton version of the donkey included in the code, although they require NBT editing to view ingame
  • Added horse armor
    • Exist in diamond, iron and gold variants

Today, Mojang has given us a 2-for-1 offer. There is a snapshot for 1.6 and a pre-release for 1.5.2.

Grab the 1.5.2 pre-release here:
The features include:

You’ll need to (re-)download the new launcher to grab the 1.6 snapshot.
The main features added are:
  • Added a new “Hardened Clay” block
  • Added extra tooltip info in the search tab for the creative inventory
  • Made deserts more deserty
  • Zombies made slightly more sociable
