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.
