Well lets see, where to start. Now keep in mind I am taking all this in as a server owner of a modded server and a vanilla server owner.

Amplified: well MC runs terribly right now so lets make a mode that requires a super-computer! Pretty bad when your PC gets better FPS in BF3 than it does a voxel based game.

Less ocean: hardly ever found any anyway.

New wood colors,stained glass,and new flowers!: Seriously? New flowers? How about a quarry? stained glass and new wood types, totally not a ripoff of BOP and galacticraft or anything.

Fishing: really just really............ Try adding some actual features........ Anybody remember the days of when they added things like pistons? Yea well now they add flowers and wood colors.

Maps less lag: meaning the same or more right? last time I heard that it got worse.

Server-wide achievements: words can't even........ I really don't care about those and I know no one who actually does. So now the servers get to be spammed with them!

Resource packs: for the love of god. just do the "plugin api" already. you know the one thats been promised since 1.0? that a lighting rewrite so the game might actually run well without a 150$ dedicated card and a 4 core cpu,8gb ram.

Built in shaders: No. not just no but HELL NO. I mean you need a 250$ video card, a monster cpu and at least 8gb of ram to run the game with 10 mods............ gg mojang. Lets make it run worse now!

I am looking forward to the rewrote sound and networking because they were terrible.
Full 1.7 changelog:

Deep Ocean
Is about ten blocks deeper than normal oceans, the maximum depth is in the low 30s
Biome Variants/Technical Biomes
Over 20 variants for the biomes.

Extreme Hills M, Taiga M, Roofed Forest M, JungleEdge M, Birch Forest Hills M, Cold Taiga M, Extreme Hills+ M, Savanna M, Savanna Plateau M, Swampland M, Jungle M, Mesa Plateau M and Mesa Plateau F M are more mountainous versions of their normal biome counterpart.
Desert M has patches of water unlike normal deserts
Birch Forest M has taller birch trees than usual
Savanna M has grassless dirt and mountains that can generate above the clouds and up to Y: 220 on rare occasions
Plateau - Biomes with a Plateau variant are like the hills technical biome, but flattened at the top
Savanna Plateau and Mesa Plateau are both plateaus
These are landforms which are raised by up to about 30 blocks and have flat tops
Mesa (Bryce) - A rare variant of the Mesa biome which works similar to ice spikes with tall clay spikes generating from the sandy mesa floor.
Hills - More technical hills biomes have been added to fit with the new biomes.
Birch Forest Hills, Cold Taiga Hills, and Mega Taiga Hills can now be generated.
Beach - New beaches separate certain biomes from oceans and rivers.
Stone Beach is composed mainly of Stone and often generates between an Extreme Hills biome and a body of water.
Cold Beach is composed of Sand with a layer of Snow on top.
Usually generates between a cold biome, such as Ice Plains, and a body of water.
World type
Amplifies the terrain hugely, using the entire world height
Almost all biomes can generate huge mountains that can reach well above Y: 200
Extreme Hills biomes frequently reach the world height limit at Y: 256
Swampland and ocean biomes unaffected by this world type
Extremely resource intensive and requires powerful computer to run
Ravines here can reach down to bedrock
Contains numerous various landforms that are very rare or non-existent in default generation
Some examples include floating islands, overhangs, large water and lava falls and huge indents
Taiga biomes reach such altitudes that snow starts generating (about Y: 130)
This world type was created by accident whilst Jeb was messing around with the terrain and Notch convinced Jeb to keep it as a world type
Improvements & Changes
Melons can now be found in Jungle Biomes in patches similar to Pumpkins
Jungle biomes have been made much rarer
Has a Jungle Edge which has less foliage, but slowly leads into the main jungle
Jungle trees now have branches
Grass is greener and fluctuates more in color, depending on biome temperature
In shallower parts, the coast is covered in staggered dirt block with lilypads between them
Now spawns with three of the new flowers - azure bluets, oxeye daisies and sometimes tulips
Double tall grass also generates here
Extreme Hills
Snow at high elevations of over y=95
Contain Stone and large dirt patches
Gravel can replace ground cover
Flat valleys near sea level
Can generate up to y=150, slightly above the clouds (previously y=124)
Has much more height variation and has flat parts as well, as opposed to the previous extreme hills which forced endless high peaks to generate
Oceans are smaller and take up much less of the map[2]
Contain only gravel on the floor instead of sand, dirt, and gravel
Gravel Beaches
Appear more often
Desert NPC Village wells are now made of cobblestone and have gravel bases like in plains Villages
Categorisation of Biomes
Four main categories based on temperature[2]
Snow-covered, cold, medium, dry/warm
Placement of Biomes
Biomes will attempt to avoid getting placed next to a biome that is too different to itself[2]
Elevation of Biomes
Much greater variation of elevation in general
Most biomes can generate to y=100
Hills technical biomes have been made taller
Modified the temperature system
Each biome has a base temperature that determines whether the biome is snow-covered, whether it rains or snows, or whether it rains at all
Biomes with a base temperature of 0.15 or less snow instead of rain
Biomes with a base temperature of 1.5 or greater don't rain[citation needed]
Biomes are grouped according to their temperature and attempt to generate next to biomes with similar temperatures
Temperature decreases by 0.05 every 30 blocks increase in altitude
Extreme Hills generate snow because of this at about y=95 as their ground base temperature is 0.2
Automatically kick idle players after some time

New enchantments for Fishing Rods that can change your luck when fishing.
Lure - reduces wait time to catch an item.
Luck of the Sea - increases chance of getting treasure and decreases chance of getting junk.
Achievements and statistics[6]
Now ties in with the scoreboard system - added 744 new objective criteria that were previously tracked with statistics and achievements
Are now per world/server[7]
Achievements screen can now be zoomed in and out using the mouse wheel.
Achievements don't appear on the achievements screen if more than five achievements need to be achieved first (i.e. "DIAMONDS!" doesn't appear until "Getting Wood" is achieved).
Data for blocks, items, and mobs don't appear in their respective tab in the Statistics screen unless the player has crafted/placed/mined that block, crafted/used/depleted that item, or killed/was killed by that mob.
When a player earns an achievement, it is now announced in chat; This can be turned off
Can be hovered over to show an achievement tooltip
Can now use statistics to create objectives; anything that statistics can track can be used as an objective (can also track achievements)
This is the reason why statistics/achievements were changed to be stored per world/server
Can now give items to players with custom names, lore and enchantments [8]
Can give items with other custom NBT tags, such as SkullOwner to obtain the Head of a specific player, or even custom mob spawner traits, which removes the necessity to use an NBT editing program to obtain these items.
Will now print renamed items' name in chat and show tooltips when hovered over
Usage: /give <player> <ID> [quantity] [damage value] [tag]
/time set day
Now sets the time to 1000 instead of 0
/time set night
Now sets the time to 13000 instead of 12000
Custom NBT data can now be added via commands
Works with /give and /summon
Syntax examples:
/give @p 1 1 0 {display:{Lore:["Hi,","How are you?"],Name:"Nice Stone Block"},ench:[{id:1,lvl:10}]}
/summon Pig ~ ~ ~ {Saddle:1, CustomName:"Babe", CustomNameVisible:1}
/give @p 397 1 3 {SkullOwner:MHF_Pig}
NBT format
List tags no longer need to be named
No longer crashes when given the wrong type (integer/short)
Chat system
"Useful to map makers, modders, players and server admins"
Added a way to do things when clicking things in chat, like executing a command
Other actions include opening a URL and showing an item tooltip when hovered on
"Saved screenshot as" messages can now be clicked to open the screenshot, takes you to the .minecraft folder
Names can now be clicked to PM people
Added /tellraw <player> <raw json message> to send chat messages with custom functionality to players - sender will not appear
Syntax example: /tellraw @p {text:"Daytime? ",color:"green",extra:[{text:"Click here!",color:"blue",clickEvent:{action:"run_command",value:"/time set day"}},{text:" Nighttime? "},{text:"Click here!",color:"blue",clickEvent:{action:"run_command",value:"/time set night"}},{text:" Have fun!"}]}
Removed the thin fog around the player
Fog is only at the edge of the visible chunks now
Death Screen
If you die and you select the 'Title screen' button, a prompt will ask if you are sure you want to quit and give you the options to go to the title screen or respawn and continue playing
Edge of the World
All blocks beyond X/Z 30 million (±30,000,000) from origin now act as solid blocks.
This includes air blocks.
This creates essentially an invisible wall at the boundary.
As all blocks function as solid, if the player is moved outside the boundary via external tools, they will be unable to move outside the block space they are within.
Despite the above, the camera can still move normally. This reveals that ghost chunks still generate, as the camera can pass through normally solid blocks beyond the boundary.
Block/Item IDs
Can now be referred to by their names instead of numbers.
Will be the only option in the future.
Necessary for the Mod API.
The Sky
Now darkens when inside.

This is done by putting a coloured dye in the centre of a crafting table and surrounding it with 8 pieces of normal glass, yielding 8 stained glass
Stained glass can be crafted into stained glass panes using the same recipe as normal glass panes
Doing this yields 16 stained glass planes, like normal glass
Water, nether portals, and other stained glass blocks remain visible when looked at through a stained glass block
The colour of blocks they are placed on are tinted towards the colour of the glass
This includes glass of two different colours behind one another
Improvements & Changes

Anyone have a workaround for MC not loading on Ubuntu since the last few updates? Do I not have something installed that I need? I'm on a Toshiba Satellite with an Intel onboard graphics card.

Well lets see, where to start. Now keep in mind I am taking all this in as a server owner of a modded server and a vanilla server owner.

Amplified: well MC runs terribly right now so lets make a mode that requires a super-computer! Pretty bad when your PC gets better FPS in BF3 than it does a voxel based game.

Less ocean: hardly ever found any anyway.

New wood colors,stained glass,and new flowers!: Seriously? New flowers? How about a quarry? stained glass and new wood types, totally not a ripoff of BOP and galacticraft or anything.

Fishing: really just really............ Try adding some actual features........ Anybody remember the days of when they added things like pistons? Yea well now they add flowers and wood colors.

Maps less lag: meaning the same or more right? last time I heard that it got worse.

Server-wide achievements: words can't even........ I really don't care about those and I know no one who actually does. So now the servers get to be spammed with them!

Resource packs: for the love of god. just do the "plugin api" already. you know the one thats been promised since 1.0? that a lighting rewrite so the game might actually run well without a 150$ dedicated card and a 4 core cpu,8gb ram.

Built in shaders: No. not just no but HELL NO. I mean you need a 250$ video card, a monster cpu and at least 8gb of ram to run the game with 10 mods............ gg mojang. Lets make it run worse now!

I am looking forward to the rewrote sound and networking because they were terrible.
um mate, i dont know where to start on THIS
new woods and glass: loads of players have requested coloured glass and trees and I personally think those two things are really cool on their own.
Fishing: fishing was really boring so mojang just decided to make it better. Its not the main feature of the update, but its quite a cool one
and the fishing rod enchantments were also requested quite a lot.
Server Wide Achievements: These are toggle-able so its just another possibility of what you can put on your server, nothing bad with this.
Also i think you forgot about the new biomes which is the main feature of the update, all these other things are just small things theyve added lol
Custom built pixelmon server with many towns and cities to explore :P

Why so many people say that this update is more laggy? I find it muuuuch better. In 1.6.4 I had to use all setting to lowest but render distance on normal and had mostly 20 fps. Now with everything (but anisotropic filtering that is nearly useless) I have 30-40 fps. It is much better.

Yeah, I saw that too! I thought it was just because it was a new world I was running. Riding horses seems to be less laggy too. I wonder if they've overhauled the chunk generation...

Wow, why the need for such a hurry ?
This update is great, but I am disappointed at the terrain generation overhaul, I think it is in need of some refinement...
With the new oceans fully made of gravel, plain clay has become nearly impossible to acquire in any decent quantities...
New extreme hills are disappointing and look very flat compared to the other biomes (savanna M variations are pretty common and a lot more hilly). I think that old (pre-1.7) extreme hills are actually a lot nicer and feature-rich.

Don't misunderstand me, the new terrain generation and biomes are awesome, but considering it is a feature that can't be updated easily nor frequently (ugly chunk borders or world reset needed), it seems to me that the current state is a half finished, quickly thrown feature.

I have followed this update closely, and when the first snapshots were out, there was talk from jeb about new/improved structures and a lot of refinement on the terrain generation. But since the first snapshot and this prerelease, the only change was some tweaking on the mesa biome. And I remember that the new generator was added at the last minute in the first snapshot, with mojang creaw saying "it's not ready yet". Then jeb disappeared for four weeks and nothing happened until last week when he returned. Even this change : [url="https://twitter.com/jeb_/statuses/373019459449282560"]https://twitter.com/jeb_/statuses/373019459449282560[/url] hasn't made it to the prerelease. I don't want to blame anyone, but considering all that, why so fast ?

Anyone know of a mapping utility compatible with 1.7 pre=release?

I'd like to generate some maps to peruse of explored territory, but not sure what utility works currently (if any.)

True! On 1.6.4 I had major lag with low graphics quality and default resource pack (I think it was around 10 fps). Now, I'm getting 35 fps with everything in the video settings turned to the max with 128x resource packs.

Find the 5 vanilla Minecraft ores boring? This mod adds 5 balanced ores into Minecraft! Click the banner!

Has anyone noticed the lack of a Y ceiling?  Last I recall, you couldn't go above 256.....

Ok, still can only build up to 255.  But odd I can fly higher.  Oh well.

The /ban command will use the player's ID instead of their name. So you can ban them no matter how much they change their name.

Dude!! Mojang hasn't "given" anyone anything. We paid for it. And considering how well Mojang has done because we bought in to Minecraft before it was even a "game" Mojang should be just as appreciative of us as we are of them.
So that means we have the right to be critical.

Yeah, I guess you are right. A lot of people have different opinions.

AMIDST is compatible with several 1.7 snapshots.  I used it this morning to look at a map I made with 1.7 pre.  Looks good.

I'm somewhat knowledgeable about computers but not a expert. I think many of the people with MC problems just throw the setting to max, use HD texture packs and/or use mods without really paying attention to what their pc can handle. If you have 2 gb of free ram, at least a integrated graphics processor and are not maxing out the FPS MC should run fine on most PCs.

I lower the fps only. everything else I leave as the default settings. So that is the answer 60fps, and default the other settings!

I don't care for mods, the vanilla MC is cool enough anyhoo! [img]http://static.minecraftforum.net//public/style_emoticons/default/biggrin.png[/img]

So excited. If anybody knows of a survival server that will be starting fresh or at least have this 1.7 update as the main world especially the Amplified... I am really wanting to play.

not sure how that all works but am hoping I can get invovled with something fresh.

Looks amazing wow! I heard it will be out Friday.
I love games, been playing since the 80's :)

Somebody doesn't appreciate all the [color=#ff0000][u][b]HARD WORK AND SWEAT MOJANG HAS PUT INTO THIS UPDATE!!!!!!!![/b][/u][/color]

How about instead of being a jerk to Mojang, you appreciate what Mojang has given you.
We don't have to appreciate what someone worked hard for. I wish they would stop adding features until they make the mod API. You also don't have to make a release for every single change you make to the game. Mojang needs to stop releasing an update every two weeks so mods can have a chance to catch up, then release the mod API when it is fully ready.
