The only awkward thing about putting a dropper next to a chest is... when you open the chest it turns on the hopper.

My solution for now would be to put a hopper as a buffer between the two if you want the dropper to only be influenced by an outside signal.

This gives you more information.

Minecraft Wiki said:

Made Zombies & Skeletons stronger, scaled to difficulty.
Burning Zombies set players on fire.
Skeletons shoot players one block away.
Skeletons shoot faster on Hard difficulty.
Added a new Dropper block.
Works much like a dispenser, but it doesn't use items, it only drops them.
Also works like a Hopper, but it needs redstone to make it travel and it needs a storage block directly in front of it.
Added a Minecart with Hopper item.
Added some new chat options (In multiplayer menu).
Moved Texture Pack option from main menu to the Options.
Texture Pack can now be changed while in a game.
At least 19 bugs squished.

Sounds like you used a trapped chest instead of the normal one.
Tis far better to be a witty fool than a foolish wit.

You're absolutely right and I feel silly now. I completely forgot they existed and they look the same.

The locked chest was reborn but it is still very weak.

I think it would be a nice simple addition to put in a minecraft with a crafting table in it, anyone else?

Awesome!
Here is a quick .gif demonstration I did on how the dropper works:
Spoiler:

"There is a world we cannot see, a world where all our imagination, dreams and fantasies lay true with no limitations and endless freedom. It is there as we speak, and it will always be there. Our world will never be able to connect to the other, but we will know that it is there, beyond this world. Those who you have lost in this world is there, and you will meet them when you are no longer part of our current world."

The next block I would like to see is a pipe that can be used to connect hoppers, it would basically act like a hopper without the storage space and would only be able to transfer items to and from hoppers (and other pipes).
The crafting recipe would contain only iron and no chest.

Dropbox acts more like a dispenser then dropping the item.

Gotta say, the dropper seems lazy.  It's basically the least useful functions of the hopper and dispenser combined.  I thought the idea to put a chest in front of a dispenser in order to store ammo was a far more elegant solution.

This gives you more information.

"skeletons shoot players from one block away"? So that means they're now super short ranged combatants or was their range increased by 1 block?

Either way, I'm not too affected by stronger mobs. Bring them on, my nano armor and vajra will crush them all.

Wow, this is quite an amazing update! The attitude for these updates is also something to be amazed at -- if you look at feedback for updates that other games have, there's quite a bit of negative feedback. This game is moving forward fast.

I love the new update for texture packs, too. It'll be easier to create custom textures now, and it's really a great (and subtle) addition.
