    Great question! I've updated the post with links to instructions. The GOAT update is available across all our supported devices.

    How long until we should expect our clients to update?  I logged in when I heard that the update had gone live.  It didn't update.  so I logged out and logged back in.  Still no sign of update.  I'm on pc and it is set to update automatically upon log in.  It is not disabled.

    ??

    Any recommendations?

    Brett Girod I love that haha We're so glad the class is excited :) 

    Aleece Landis Something to try is to log into the app, wait a couple minutes, close it and it may start auto-updating. If it does not, you can try uninstalling and then reinstalling from our downloads page

    When doing this, we suggest backing up your worlds in a separate folder just in case. Here is the import/export guide.

    Ok so the other two computers here updated just fine.  It is also my Lenovo IdeaPad S145 that did not update.  Indeed, when I went into the scheduler and told it to run the update.  It appears to have REMOVED EE from the computer!

    Ok, first I think I should attempt to actually uninstall before I install the new update.

    ********************ok, can't find it to remove it so I guess I just try installing the new download*****************************************

    ******************************************a while later************************

    It took a couple tries one failed install before it finally installed but I am now updated even on the Lenovo laptop.

    Now to start testing things out.

    Can you add holiday creator features, creation of custom biomes, and additional modding capabilities toggles for the worlds, so we can create custom biomes and such.

    That's strange -- why do they need to minimize the window? Can you avoid that while engineers look into it?

    hi Bryan ! 

    in our classes, students minimize the window to see the browser, classroom, meet, etc. and if we are on the same server, it disconnects us from it

    thanks again!

    Hmmm, I see -- well, perhaps you could have the students re-size their windows so they all fit on one screen.

    Franco Trivini can you give us more information about what is happening?  What devices are you using, and what are the steps the students go through to get to the issue?  A screenshot or exact error message will be helpful.

    Hi penny

    in our classes, students minimize the window to see the browser, classroom, meet, etc. and if we are on the same server, it disconnects us from it

    look this video when the teacher minimizes the window, the students are expelled from the server

    Hi,

    Hello! I have a problem with the new version.
    My students lose connection to the server when they play in windowed mode and they switch to see the browser where the online class is located.

    Thanks!

    Hello Lautaro Ceballos -

    Our engineers were able to duplicate the issue and are looking into it.  In the meantime, have your students switch windows instead of minimizing when they are actively playing Minecraft: Education Edition.

    We'll be updating this post when there is more information:  when they minimize the mee window the server is disconnected – Minecraft: Education Edition Support

    I am so happy that Minecraft Education was updated to the 1.17 Caves and Cliffs!! The main thing I was looking out for was Netherite. But on my computer, it still stayed on the 1.14 update. May someone please fix it? My friends and I are looking forward to it!

    Thanks a lot.

    How do you import Structures?  Can you import from other worlds?

    Eg Can i copy and paste a strucure from one build to the next?

    Hello, Justin... Not sure where to post bugs.. but ever since the update, i am unable to edit any chalkboards that I had prior to the update. I can edit new ones that i put out.. but the ones that were there before are no longer able to be edited. I will probably just destroy them and add new ones to fix my issue in my world.. but maybe you wanted to know about this. I did take a screen recording, and was able to duplicate the issue on my son's chromebook. I am on a Macbook. Not sure where i can send the screen recording if needed. I also went into one of the template worlds from the library to see if i could edit the chalkboards there as i normally can.. and I was unable to. I can type in the chalkboards but once i exit out, any changes that i make do not stick, so that might be an issue for anyone wanting to customize lessons...

    updated to the latest version and see that the Raytracing option is turned off, I have a Geforce RTX 3070 and latest drivers. Is raytracing just not included in the Education code?

    If your Windows device hasn't updated, you may need to log out and even re-boot your device, then log back in.  Wait 10-15 min then launch Minecraft: Education Edition.  If you don't see the updated version, it's possible that your school is managing your updates.  I would recommend reaching out to your school support desk to see if they can help.

    Nicholas Glohe I'm going to open a ticket with our support desk so we can troubleshoot.  We've seen reports of this issue with Chromebooks on a network with a proxy server.

    Nicholas Joosten you can import structures to other worlds, but it requires some advance world scripting.  You can save/load in the same world using the name field in the block. To load a structure into a different world, you need to save the .mcstructure and put it into a behavior pack so that it will show up in the name field of a different worlds.

    We don't have native support for behavior packs, so if you do go down this path make sure to export and save all of your worlds in case something goes haywire.
