- Zombies, skeletons and zombie pigmen have enchanted armor and weapons.
- Villagers turn into zombies when killed by a zombie.
- Villagers trading has been changed: Villagers will not like you if you hurt them and like you if you trade with them more. By doing different trades with the villager can cause them to restock old sold-out trades.
- Large trees now generate their branches with rotated logs
- Chatting should now work ok even if the server is lagging
- F3 now shows your feet and your head level
- Logs are now rotatable
- Creepers now do more damage, but the damage scales depending on your difficulty. Creepers on hard mode can reduce you to 2 hearts with full diamond armour.
- Explosions now give knockback
- Reduced XP from furnaces
- Lots of bugfixes and optimisation
- Further optimisation to try to reduce the increased resource requirements
- Changes to fix bugs with pistons. However this unfortunately seems to change the way they act and will break some piston systems :/
- Boats now drop boats when broken
- Signs stack to 16 and the recipe now makes 3 signs instead of 1 (Awesome!)
- Addition of Multiplayer options and interface for single player worlds.

- Finally there are 4 types of wooden stairs.
- If you start drowning, the damage no longer prevents you from reaching the surface
- Villagers now run out of resources and eventually remove their trades as they run out.
- Single player servers are now in their first (buggy) working version. Invite a player to your single player world using /publish

- Loads of little bugfixes

- Cocoa beans are now easier to obtain, they have been added to jungle biomes. Good for cookies!
- The sandstone blocks have been named 'Chiseled Sandstone' and 'Smooth Sandstone'.

- In creative right-clicking a cart will give it the equivalent of coal
- Dispensers have been upgraded: they can now dispense carts and boats into the object rather than a floating item.

- Middle clicking in creative mode allows you to 'pick block' you are looking at and get it in your hand.
- Mob eggs now spawn babies
- Creative-picking reeds, redstone blocks or signs doesn't give you the item
