    Pre-classic

    13th May 2009 - 16th May 2009

    The very first builds of Minecraft still available today, all created within hours/days of its inception on May 13th 2009. All of these are taken from the launcher, where they were first made available in 2013 by Dinnerbone. Although not fully confirmed, it has been indicated that these came from a source code backup on an old computer/backup that belonged to Notch, as well as from his ex-wife ez. These builds are not signed or obfuscated but have been altered to work in the launcher hence why they have a 2013 modified date.

    27th Feb 2010 - 30th Jun 2010

    All currently found versions from the first Infdev on February 27th 2010 until the last on June 30th 2010 (debatable...). Infdev stands for infinite-development, due to its addition of infinite worlds. Much of Infdev was spent optimising the feature of infinite worlds and adding back features from Indev that were broken due to it. Towards the end of Infdev some smaller features were added such as doors, signs, stairs, dungeons, minecarts etc. Includes various versions found online and from old players by Omniarchive over the past few years.
