Recently, Jeb_ announced a new Java Edition snapshot on reddit. Some time ago, the first version was launched already and now Jeb_ has taken the community feedback and improved plenty of things.
It is still unknown when these new combat mechanics will be implemented in a new update. In his post, Jeb_ tells us that they will be implemented when they’re ‘good enough’. The 1.15 theme won’t be ‘Combat Update’, he says.
