THE NEW MINECRAFT UPDATE SURPRISED ME IN MANY WAYS. At first, I was reluctant to get it. All my mods, all my texture packs, all my everything would be outdated. Well, what was left of my everything. Half the mods I installed didn't work. The names of these mods I will tell you for future references. They might be better in 1.4.2, but I'm not sure. They are Armor Movement Mod, ShapeShifter Mod, and Dovah Pig Mod(Actually one part, the huge jungle biomes part, did show as being functional).
ANYWAY, A WENT THROUGH WITH THE UPDATE. And wow, was it worth it! The complete list of features is shown below:

+ Added a beacon
+ Added flower pots
+ Added item frames

+ Added pumpkin pies

- Removed Herobrine
(Update list from www.minecraft.net)
I could of sworn that they got rid of Herobrine in 1.3.2, but I'm not so sure.

SOME THINGS IN THE LIST MADE ME HAPPY. New sound effects is pretty cool. Zombies can infect villagers?! Villagers can be cured, too! Leather armor can be dyed! Also, you can place mob heads places. One more thing. NEW MOBS! When I saw that, I was really excited!
They also added a boss mob. They added witches and bats.
AS YOU CAN SEE, THIS WAS MOSTLY INTENDED FOR THE HALLOWEEN SEASON. Will the mobs and other halloween-related add-ons be permanent? Most likely. Witches look like they might be found in places like NPC villages, so they may be incorperated into the game for good. Bats look as if they dwell in, well, caves, so it is likely that they will stay in the game, too.
I THINK THAT GIVING PLAYERS THE OPTION TO DYE LEATHER ARMOR WAS PRETTY SMART. I mean, it makes sense, because leather armor has a boring color, to give us the ability to customize and add maybe a bit of personality to it. Anyway, it's a cool feature that I am looking forward to using.
SO HERE'S THE QUESTION: SHOULD I GET THE MINECRAFT UPDATE? IS IT WORTH IT? Well here's your answer: Yes. Every sing bit of it. leave your comments and feedback please, for I will enjoy it.

I don't like the witches. I would delete the coding, but it would most likely mess something up.
