If your expecting the updates to be different from the 360 to the one, your gonna be sorely disappointed. The only thing MC XB1 Edition has going for it ATM is larger world size. The updates are going to be the same across the board, be it XB1 or XB360.
Also, 4J have in the past, sneaked in additions that were not in the initial change log, so how about we wait until the update comes out before passing judgement. Then in a weeks time, we'll have had sufficient time to have gone through the update and see what else was included.

WIP 128x 64x, SEUS support, Mod support in the pipeline TEKKIT, FTB, the more support the more mods!
I'm not going to be that optimistic guy everyone hates, but let it be this way for a while. This TITLE UPDATE was out today, and I'm pretty sure that as I'm typing this post, 4J is doing their best to work on the remaining features we didn't get with this update. Let's wait just a little more, because as you can see, they were not only working in this title update but they were also working on that LittleBigPlanet mashup pack and in the Minecon skin pack.
Oh, do you guys remember that Minecon 2015 was going to be full of big surprises? Be a little more patient with this and let's what they had planned, because I'm expecting they will finally announce pc 1.9 version of Minecraft, they will probably announce more features for the pocket edition, and I'm sure they will explain what happened about this title update we console players just received.
The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
I had to sign in to get this update. It worked eventually. Once I had read through the new features I was asking myself whether or not I should start a new world and the reason being that I had used a lot of daylight sensors and really needed stained glass. But I wanted a bigger world and bigger buildings anyway. I didn't realise how big the map was and how things have to fit a certain scal dependent upon the size of the minecraft character's dimensions.
The new features are okay but more could have been added. The stained glass is welcomed as is the inverted daylight sensors. I was hoping for the lighting glitches to get sorted. A glowstone doesn't really go that far, and in large buildings the shadows are not welcomed if there is nothing solid to cast the shadow. The book and quil I have never heard of. Can anyone explain what this is for? The new doors are okay I guess, but they look about ordinary. I was hoping for a train-cart or tram-cart instead of having to use a minecart, and I was also hoping for soul sand to be used to alter rail speeds or something of that nature. I would have liked to see more variety of plants and betterlooking ferns and shrubs. Obviously, better looking city-texture graphics to improve the look of that awful clay. Could do with bold solid colour blocks as well. 5/10 for the update.
I forgot to add that the flat terrain adjustment is a good and welcomed idea.
Good, seems I can update from my account instead of the original DL account. I am looking forward to seeing these updates, seeing how I just started all these are added and not stuff I was wanting for ages lol.
Hopefully the stained glass and door changes look great on Skyrim, gonna check the superflat alterations as well
Im happy about everything exsept this one unforgiveing bug. So today I desided to delete my item testing world, but the game deletes my 367 level parkor map. I am really angery about this and I blame Jens. And what about all the talk on new fish and command blocks? Really? Like I said, unforgiving.
While both the book and quill and classic crafting are free they are both, more so the book and quill, more efficient with
chatpad/keyboard which means for those of us who don't have those things would need to buy them to enjoy these features
more fully. Although I find bulk crafting to be my preferred method. The book and quill however has no shortcuts and for
story creators a chatpad/keyboard would almost be manditory to save large amounts of time.
Plus this update almost feels like it was rushed. 200+mb for everything we got just doesn't seem right.
Note that you also use your smartphone if you install Microsoft Smartglass, there is no need to buy anything nor even use the Book & Quill if you don't want to. Others like myself are happy with release of this content, ofcourse we'd love to see the 1.8.7 equivalent, however while they are working towards that I personally am real happy to get some of the content pulled forward to soften the wait.
With regards to the size of the content update, some stuff was already in the game but needed fixes before it was released.
