Mojang Studios has dropped the last major patch for Minecraft: Java Edition this year. Update 1.19.3 adds a slew of new features and improvements.

The company wants the Minecraft community to be free from abusers and exploiters as much as possible. That is why in Update 1.19.3, the new draft player reports feature is added. Basically, this feature automatically creates a draft of a report, so players can go back to it whenever they exit the player reporting screen deliberately or by accident. The draft report continues to exist until the player leaves the current world or server. Before they exit the game, they are given a choice of whether to finish the reports or discard them entirely. If the community wants to get rid of bad actors, sending player reports promptly is a must.

In addition, the Creative Inventory is improved and now arranges blocks according to their material. So, those who are looking for Oak Blocks and variants, for example, can now find them quickly and easily.

Here are the other notable changes in this patch:

  • Blocks and items have been moved into categories that fit them better
  • Some items can now be found in more than one tab
  • Various tabs have been renamed or collapsed into others
  • The search tab now lists items sequentially grouped by the other tabs
    • For example, items found in Building Blocks will always appear before items in Redstone Blocks
  • A Colored Blocks tab has been added that contains all blocks with 16 color variants
  • Petrified Oak Slab has been removed from the Creative Inventory
    • It can still be accessed through commands
  • The following missing items have been added to the Creative Inventory:
    • Suspicious Stew:
    • The tooltip will show the effect of a stew before it's picked up from the Creative Inventory
    • Only stews with effects available via crafting or Mooshrooms are listed
    • Dragon Egg
    • Ominous Banner
    • Monster Spawner
    • All 3 flight durations of Fireworks
  • Fence Gates no longer provide center support beneath them
  • When opening, Shulker Boxes will pop off blocks which are attached to opened faces (such as Torches)
  • Blocks that require support cannot be placed on these open faces while the Shulker Box is open
  • Added new Spawn Egg items for Ender Dragon, Iron Golem, Snow Golem and Wither mobs to Creative mode
    • Ender Dragon and Wither Spawn Eggs will only be available through commands to prevent accidental destruction of player builds
  • Polar Bear Spawn Egg colors have changed to distinguish it from the Ghast Spawn Egg
  • Removed Chat Preview
  • Chat messages deleted by server moderators will no longer be completely hidden, but rather replaced with text stating "This chat message has been deleted by the server."
  • Deleted chat messages will now be displayed in the chat window for at least 3 total seconds before being hidden
