We're excited to announce our Library Release of Minecraft: Education Edition (Version 1.12.5). In this release, we deliver updates to our in-game library, add a demo lesson, and make minor bug fixes to improve performance and stability.
The Library menu has been updated based on user feedback to bring lesson content in-game, providing lesson plans and categories to simplify navigating the library of lessons, worlds, build challenges, and tutorials. We will continually be adding content into this new format, so you will consistently see new worlds and lessons.
Allow network access to the following sites for game and coding access:
- https://*.xboxlive.com (Library/Demo Lesson)
- https://*.playfabapi.com (Library/Demo Lesson)
As part of this release, we're also introducing a demo lesson experience for users without an Office 365 Education account (right side pictured above). Users with an Office 365 Education account can proceed with the regular sign-in experience (left side pictured above) and access the world used in the demo lesson from the world library.
This release also includes various fixes to address known issues and help improve usability and stability of the game.
