Following the full release of Minecraft at MineCon on November 18, 2011, Mojang started to use officially the logo from Beta 1.8 as the main logo of the franchise (although it actually first appeared on Beta 1.4, but with a slightly different design that was changed later). Despite it got discontinued in 2015 it can be still seen in Java Edition's logo.
An improved redesign of the logo was first seen in the official website around 2011, before the full release of the game. It would later be used in tandem with logo above until 2015, mostly in merchandise and other type of media. It was also used in the Pocket (before v0.7.1) and Xbox 360 Editions.
