I'm not sure if it's a bug or if it's meant by mojang, but it seems like in the pre-release bud switches are no longer activated when wheat is growing as it used to. This is annoying me since I was doing a semi-automatic wheat farm which would automatically detect when the wheat is grown.
Does anyone have informations about that ?

Can you post a screenshot or two of your setup?  Perhaps the way you're doing it isn't reliable.

I tried it with terrible results. I gave my wife my glasses for a second, a creeper showed up and now my wife is pregnant.

I checked, it works with the 1.4.7 but not with the snapshots, so I don't think it comes from my setup.

I believe they attempted to remove BUD update bugs so they could replace them with some sort of redstone device. I don't know if they ever did though.

No, what they said was that if their changes to redstone broke buds that they would make a device to replace them, but last I knew buds still worked.

Oh, ok. I don't think they added anything to replace BUDs anyway.

Does it trigger when you break the wheat?

Thanks for the replies !

It does update when I plant the wheat and when I break it. I guess they just changed the way the wheat grows. By the way, same thing goes for the cocoa, it triggers the bud switch only when it is broken. Anyway, I think I will wait for the release of the 1.5 update and see how things are.

They're probably removing unneccessary block updates to optimize performance or something. Not sure if the benefit will even be noticeable, even with massive farms, etc. They're probably doing it just on principle.

Try waiting until the wheat grows or try using bonemeal on it.  I think it only sends out updates when it reaches the final growth stage.

There's still no block update when reaching the final growth stage.
