Haha, yeah, if only there was some sort of vast resource of minecraft knowledge available. Perhaps a wiki...

I have encountered at least one slime underground, not sure if they spawn in swamps in this version.
I saw beets growing in a village.
Had my first ever encounter with a skeleton horse in this version (console edition player previously).
I don't know about the other things, haven't explored that much in this new version. It is so much easier to get lost now and I am really really good at getting lost so I have been slowly, carefully exploring.

Pretty good so far, the biggest drawback is that the UI isn't at all controller friendly: crafting, trading, etc.
It also seems like you have to be pretty close to an area for crops to grow and even when they do it is very slowly.

and on twitter: @popsramjet has provided some information as well. Apparently he is the Executive Producer for Minecraft on all consoles. 4J Studios twitter account referenced him for any questions regarding the Better Together Update.
I try to only share reliable information provided by 4J/Mojang/Microsoft (and the voices in my head, well, you know, the reliable ones).

The 'Better Together Update' is actually a separate game, not an update like the name would imply. If you choose to download the new game when it is available you will have two minecraft games on your xbox; the 'Minecraft: Xbox One Edition' and one that I believe will simply be called 'Minecraft'.
My understanding is that once the new 'Minecraft' is released the version you currently have will remain and no future updates will occur to it. Your redstone contraptions should be fine on the current version but might not work if you transfer the world to the new 'Minecraft'.

The south side of iron bars and glass panes take up their entire quadrant. The player should be able to stand right next to iron bars and glass panes and actually be able to stand on the block that is directly below the bars and/or panes. This can be achieved on the north, east and west sides. The south side will not allow you to, you will be standing on the block beside the one the bars or pane are on.
I didn't try all colors of glass panes so I don't know if all are affected by this bug. Fences and end rods seemed to work as expected.

For future reference, I believe it is best to fill the farmer's inventory completely with seeds from the beginning. If they have wheat and seeds in their inventory it is possible for them to run out of seeds and then fill up with wheat, preventing them from being able to replant.
For your particular set up, how are you replenishing the farmer's seed supply? If the water is harvesting then I would assume the majority of seeds are being collected as well and not going to the farmer?
You may want to look into the auto farm design with a mine cart running under it.

No, I mainly asked so that if anyone knew of plans to change it, they could say so. I did read up some about the game, unless one specifically looked for information about the world size in comparison to the PC version, there was no information on world size readily available. Obviously, I didn't think my complaint would change anything.I was looking to mildly vent about the game, as well as to find out if anyone knew about future plans. If you wanna fanboy out on me about it, that's your business, but don't expect to convince me that this isn't a disappointment for many, especially for a game they are asking you drop 20 bucks for.
P.S.: I've probably been gaming since long before you were born, and am pretty decent and finding information about
games, again (for obvious reasons) this is a thing that is not highly publicized, and in fact wasn't even mentioned in the reviews I did look at.
Well, search skills aside, the game is $20 and provides quite a bit of value at that price (for most players). I'm wondering how much you actually played it or did you just discover the map isn't nearly as big as the pc version and decided the game is crap?
I've put more hours in to console Minecraft than any game I have ever owned. I purchased the game shortly after it was released and I still sometimes play on the very first map I ever made. Even after all of this time I have yet to exhaust the map of resources nor have I come anywhere close to running out of room.
Obviously, if 4J could somehow make the maps larger and the game still function properly I would be all for it, but I would in no way consider the map size "intolerable" or even a slight impediment to someone enjoying the game.
P.S. Not that age necessarily correlates to maturity or intelligence, there weren't many video games being played before I was born and it is doubtful you were playing any that may have existed at the time.

Yeah yeah, I know the Xbox 360 is old etc.
Seriously though, the world is so teeny it makes it hardly worth playing, I mean...it is a small clump of islands.
Might as well play Terraria, 2d but at least you wont hit the end of the world running for 3 minutes...really wishing I could get my money back, I would not have bought this if I'd known beforehand about the dismal world size.
Do they plan on improving this at any point?
I really don't buy that this is simply a technical hurdle.
The game has been out for a number of years now. The size of the map is no secret. There are many threads within this forum discussing the world size and/or asking for it to be increased. There is no legitimate reason you were unaware of the size. If you are unhappy with your purchase it is your own fault. Caveat emptor...

The post you referenced is a little incomplete in how they were interpreting the figures... but welcome to citizen press... blogs and all, we have to move with the times and accept people will always post something that's not entirely factual.
However, the whole point of having places where these discussions about things that are broken and such are vital to 21st century game development.
Try and understand, I am of a generation where games were released bug free. Where updates and repairs were not 'daily' things. Nightly builds were unheard of because the technology to 'supply' those fixes didn't exist. The world doesn't work that way any more.
Todays world is very different and in order for people to know the problems (and for the devs to fix them), we have these new platforms where complaining is really just sharing our experiences and letting the devs know what to fix first. The big ticket items that a million people are mentioning should be tackled with more urgency than the one sticky little thing that three people are concerned with. But that sticky little thing needs discussion because they might be another billion who just think it too tiny to mention so they keep quiet.
It is the new norm. The natural lifestyle of development of anything and everything in the 21st century unfortunately.

A lot of people keep saying that playing with coordinates makes playing in survival easier, so therefore it must be a cheat.
However.... You can play the game in Peaceful difficulty in survival, which completely turns off hostile mobs and makes the game infinitely more easy to play, is not a cheat. This makes no sense.
The problem is that Microsoft/Mojang are trying to win over the console community to the new version. Coordinates have been a part of the Xbox One console edition since day one.
- Yes, we have infinite worlds... What's the point in it if you have to build your base near spawn to find your way home?
- Yes, we have realms.... Same thing. Unless everyone on the realm just wants to build a giant community build together (at or near spawn), spreading out and building your own bases in the world might be fun, but if you can't find each other in the world, what is the point in playing together?
- Yes we have servers.... Since we can't create our own actual SMP servers the ones included are really nothing more than glorified mini-games. If they ever add the ability to console versions to allow connecting to actual SMP servers, we're going to have the same problems as we have with realms.
This game was designed to allow us to play it however we want. There are so many options as to how to set up your world: Creative or Survival? Peaceful, Easy, Normal, or Hard? Some things should be considered a cheat in the game, but taking away something that a group of people that you are trying to win over are used to having is quite a bit rough. It's hard enough dealing with the major differences in redstone, but you're not winning any brownie points with these people by slapping them on the wrists and calling them cheaters.

per hit, not overall. DPS is a thing people!
I have yet to see a Minecraft update that completely disappoints me. So I guess my personal Golden Age is this moment right now, as the game is at it's best for me at this moment.

i dont know why you folks thing custom draw skins NEVER happen, loads of games allow you to custom your skins, usually in the car racing genre... but Forza, MS OWNED flagship racing game allows for anything to be drawn on your car.. if its offensive and its reported that person gets their hand slapped.
theres absolutely no reason why we cant have a skin editor.

The game hasnt really changed much in the sense of the game itself.... with the exception of the new pvp combat stuff....
its still been the same game under the hood.
The problem wiith the game is users have "grown up" with the game, and as such, users have adapted to the gameplay world, and by doing so they dont struggle with the tasks that originally plagued them when they first delved into the minecraft world.

I "bullied" others as a kid and was "bullied" plenty as well. It isn't going to stop. While I won't say it's simply part of growing up and is good for everyone, I will say there is value learning to deal with adverse situations and people.
People only have as much control over you, your thoughts, and your emotions, as you allow them to have. There is a benefit in the development of resilience; the ability of maintaining a tough skin.
Sorry, cupcake, but the real world is not dandelions and rainbows. Being able to withstand the daily slings and arrows of everyday life is essential, because there aren't that many "safe spaces" to retreat to when you are force to do some adulting.
