So, you want to know what else happened? There you go!
Sheep spawn in more colors, however rarely. (Confirmed: Brown, Pink)
Movement in flowing water is slower.
Dungeons are more common (unconfirmed).
Flowers and Mushrooms are more common.
Cocoa Beans can be found in Dungeon chests.
Wheat grows more quickly.
Sugarcane can now grow to four blocks tall
The new default hotkey for the inventory is 'E'.
SMP servers can now have a new world seeded with an option in the Server.properties file.
Zombies and Spiders now hurt you in all instances (previously could only hurt you if they were 1 block above your location).
Client-sided slime spawn on SMP have been fixed.
Crafting Wooden Slab or Redstone Torch would make your game crash. (Was fixed a couple hours after version release, without updating the version number )
Tamed wolves whimper in SMP regardless of health. (This is because client-side health was used instead of synched health. )
Wolves cannot travel through doors. A small hole can be punched out near the door as they are 1x1, thus creating a "doggy-door" until their pathfinding is updated to recognize open doors as a path they can walk through.
You can place Ladders anywhere underwater, even if there are no walls.
Beds do not always act as the spawn point. This is not a bug, the spawn point will be reverted to the original if the bed is destroyed.
You can create a farm patch using a hoe underwater.
Sometimes torches do not emit light, but can be forced to by placing a light emitting torch near them. If these torches are removed, the light will not go away.
And promised screens!
|Brown sheep :D|
|Brown dye in dungeon|
|Hostile wolves after attacking them|
|Some neutral wolves|
|4 blocks high sugar cane. First I was like WTF, but then I've noticed that it's possible now|
|Weird light bug, still don't know anything about it.|
Unfirtunately I can't post any texture packs here, because authors still need some time to update them for 1.4, but as soon as there will be my favourite one avaliable I'll tell you :)
That's all for now, have fun !
