Java Edition is sold directly by Mojang Studios, so it does not have to go through platform holders certification. Java Edition has its own launcher. Logging in with a Mojang account is required to play the game. In addition to the latest version and latest snapshot, most past versions of Java Edition are also available through launcher. The launcher allows for separate profiles that are useful for mods, development versions, and old versions. The Java Edition's code is more easily modified than other editions, and so it has by far the most robust scenes for mods and custom servers. For example, addition of obfuscation map, which is intended to make modding easier. Realms for Java Edition is a separate service from Realms Plus for Bedrock Edition. Owners of Java Edition who bought a game before October 19 2018 can redeem a free copy of Bedrock Edition for Windows 10, provided that code was redeemed prior to April 20 2020.

Full release of Minecraft, 1. 00, was released during MINECON 2011 on November 18 2011, by Notch at the keynote address ceremony at 9: 54 pm UTC. Jeb confirmed the version number in a tweet while also stating that the game would be officially out of Beta.

The most prominent feature is the ending to the game, which can be achieved by defeating the Ender Dragon boss at the end. The full release of Minecraft is charged at full price to new players, but Alpha and Beta players receive this copy through regular updating. After release, Notch said in an interview that he was nervous about releasing the full game that would be rat and review. Upon release, game was well received and was given high ratings by many gaming websites and fan reviews. Subsequent updates have since been release, with additions such as new gameplay mechanics, new mobs and biomes. For full list of additions since 1. 00, see Java Edition version history. Game receives Java Edition subtitles in Java Edition 1. 12. 2, to separate it from Bedrock Edition, which was renamed to just Minecraft by Better Together Update.
