All of my railways are long converted to be 100% 1.6 friendly.
Other than that I've been setting aside some mushrooms to plant, as well as harvesting large amounts of glowstone on the off chance that down the road beyond 1.6 and when the Sky Dimension is coming into play that it may require a portal similar to the Nether made of glowstone.

Prepare? Updates? I never prepare for them. I don't take advantage of the bugs notch fixed anyway, so no point. I'm glad I can now make a more compact railroad, with 2 rails next to each other that can turn the other way after a certain point, or whatever. I wouldn't mind getting more sugar canes/reeds, but I have plenty anyway, chests full. Only thing I need to do is craft a compass...
Stopped playing because most of the mods are going to be broken.
Yea usually I love getting into mods (I was fanatical with L4D2 & WoW), but I decided to avoid it in minecraft for the reason you stated. This game may be in beta, but it certainly isn't as stable as one would expect a beta to be - and mods only exacerbate the problem. Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't official mod support supposed to be on the horizon somewhere?
I always start a new world when a new update hits. So, no preparation necessary. Though I'm a little disappointed because my video card fried about a week ago, and all I can play Minecraft on now is this laptop which gets about 10-20 FPS on fast/normal. Playable, I guess, but not ideal. I can't get a new card until mid June.
Nothing. My reed farm is already gigantic enough to supply a large amount of maps, my mob trap never used glass (except for peeking inside), and I have already replaced all the glitch boosters with booster tracks.
So maybe I missed something, but my skeleton trap currently has glass on the front wall where the mobs get stuck, will I need to replace this with a different material?
