Goat stands on a hill

The snapshots trek on, and Mojang Studios have now released 22w17a.

Goat horns now officially make an appearance, thou we have had them as a custom item in Drustcraft for a while now! Use the horn to play a loud sound that can be heard from afar with each horn having its own sound based on the Goat it originated from. There are 8 Goat Horn variants, 4 of them exclusive to screaming Goats.

The full changelog for Minecraft: Java Edition Snapshot 22w17a includes:

New Features in 22w17a

  • Added Goat Horn!

Goat Horn

  • A Goat Horn drops when a Goat rams a tree or any other hard block that occurs naturally where Goats spawn (Logs, Stone, Packed Ice, Iron Ore, Copper Ore, or Emerald Ore)
    • Other solid blocks are unfamiliar to the Goat, so it won’t ram them
  • Use the horn to play a loud sound that can be heard from afar
  • Each horn has its own sound based on the Goat it originated from
  • There are 8 Goat Horn variants, 4 of them exclusive to screaming Goats
  • Goat Horns can sometimes be found in Pillager Outposts

Changes in 22w17a

  • The Allay connecting with Note Blocks is now better visualized by the vibration particle
  • The Allay connecting with Note Blocks can now be blocked by Wool Blocks again
  • Replaced realms subtle selected world highlight with a clear green checkmark
  • Updated the Brewing Stand’s base UVs and texture to match a graphical fix in Bedrock Edition
  • Explosions caused by player-ignited TNT now cause experience to drop from broken blocks (such as ore blocks and sculk)
    • We will be keeping an eye on feedback for this change, it might change in a future update
  • Sculk blocks now have very low blast resistance
  • Warden balancing


  • Their ranged attack will now:

    • Bypass shields and armor
    • Deal 10 damage instead of 30 damage, and the cooldown has been reduced from 5 seconds to 2 seconds
    • Display a custom death message
  • Wardens now drop a single Sculk Catalyst upon death

Technical Changes in 22w17a

  • Signed Chat
  • Removed dampenable_vibrations game event tag

Multiplayer Secure Chat Signing

This is the first step in a process to provide more security and player safety features for in-game chat. We'd love to hear your thoughts, but keep in mind that many features such as server-driven styling of chat messages are still missing.

  • Chat messages between players are now cryptographically signed
  • Players are given a Mojang provided key-pair on startup
  • Servers can require players to have a Mojang-signed public key by setting enforce-secure-profile=true in
    • Enforcing secure profiles will prevent players without a Mojang-signed public key from connecting
    • By default this is set to false, allowing players to connect without a Mojang-signed public key
  • Chat styling is now handled via server resource packs with the translation key chat.type.text
