TECHNICAL CHANGES IN 22W19A

  • Servers can now enable Chat Preview, which displays a server-controlled preview above the chat edit box
  • Changes to the locate and place commands

CHAT PREVIEW

  • Servers can enable Chat Preview by setting previews-chat=true in server.properties
  • When enabled, a server-controlled preview appears above the chat edit box, showing how the message will look when sent
  • This can be used by servers to preview messages with styling applied, such as emojis or chat coloring
  • Chat Preview sends chat messages to the server as they are typed, even before they’re sent
    • The server then sends back the styled preview in real time
    • This allows servers to apply dynamic message stylings while still allowing chat to be securely signed
  • A warning screen is shown on the client when joining a server with Chat Preview, and it can be globally disabled in Chat Settings
  • Dynamic chat styling can also be controlled by the server, although this is only signed when Chat Preview is enabled
    • Clients can prefer to always show the original, signed message by enabling “Only Show Signed Chat” in Chat Settings

PLACE TEMPLATE

The place command can now also place templates at a given location. Syntax:
place template <template> [pos] [rotation] [mirror] [integrity] [seed]
