1.6 brought with it some unfortunate bugs, but they are being squashed in record time! Mojang really rolled up their sleeves on this one, and the bug-fix list is almost too huge to put in one place. Doesn't mean we aren't doing it anyway!
[MC-149] – Powered pistons drop as items in creative
[MC-1545] – Player's and Horses head while riding having strange behaviour when looking at the skin in the inventory
[MC-2025] – Animals going out of fenced areas/suffocate in blocks when loading chunks
While bug fixing is always a good thing, they still haven't fixed particles being rendered behind liquids, stuttering on boats/minecarts when exiting and re-entering a save and the horrible performance the new launcher causes on people with Intel GPUs.
Lovely, another update. I might as well wait till next moth before I try to play this game with the number of mods I run. I'll admit, I like the idea of bug fixes, but every update takes a week out of my play at least, because all my worlds will loose a ton of stuff if I load them.
Enjoy raiding and pvp in highly customizable and well organized groups, but hate the setup of Factions? Then check out my upcoming server containing multiple custom plugins and opearting on Minecraft version 1.8!
