Jeb recently released another iteration of 1.9 Pre-Release, which you can get right here. Included in this release are dragons, the "endgame" and bug-fixes for all bugs listed here marked with an "F". One new bug that came with the release is that wooden doors need redstone to open right now, but don't worry! It is a bug, and it is getting fixed. Give the new pre-release a spin here! Server hosts wishing to run 1.9.6 PR can get the server file right here.
