The most notable changes in 1.7.3 compared to 1.7.2 are as follows:

  • Fixed render distances above 8 (may not work in multiplayer, servers have their own view distance they limit you to)
  • Many bug fixes and optimizations!

Note that the Twitch integration is only supported on Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8 as well as Mac OS X Lion 10.7 or higher.
