15w14a is an April Fools' joke released on April 1, 2015. It was released as a hoax announcement and snapshot for Java Edition 1.10, which Mojang named The Love and Hugs Update. This update is unrelated to the actual 1.10 update, and no further snapshots were released.[1]

Superflat QR code
A map showing the QR code.

On superflat worlds, near coordinates x=0, z=0, there is an area wherein some chunks snow is more frequent than usual chunks while raining and in others there is no snow even when raining, forming a QR code. When this code is scanned, it would reveal the name of The Combat Update.
