Notable additions for survival:

  • Item frames can give off a signal detected by Comparators.
  • Lots of changes to villager AI. Some of them now actually do stuff!
  • Looting now gives 1% chance of rare loot per level

  • You can now spawn Iron Golems/Snow Golems/Withers with dispensers + pumpkin/skulls respectively
  • Bushes can now catch fire
  • Buttons can now be placed on ceiling/floors

Notable additions for mapmakers:

  • New command /particle to show particle effects in the world. It can also be relative to entities. Example: /particle lava ~ ~1 ~ 1 1 1 0.5 2 @e[type=Chicken]
  • Added the ability to filter block types in the /fill command, but only if it’s used to fill in replace mode with “normal” blocks. It does not work when filling with block entities. Syntax: /fill <x1><y1><z1><x2><y2><z2><tilename><datavalue>replace [filterBlockName] [filterData]</datavalue></tilename></z2></y2></x2></z1></y1></x1>
  • Fixed most of the remaining issues with the /clone command, for example chest orientation.

To get snapshots, open your launcher and press the “New Profile” button. Call it “snapshots” and check the box saying “Enable experimental development snapshots” and save. To switch to the normal version, you can select it in the dropdown at the bottom left corner of the launcher. Back up your world first or run the game on in a different folder (See the “new profile” dialog). Snapshots can corrupt your world.
