* New tree types -- like evergreen trees in snow biomes also tree leaves have different colors and different types of tree trunks
* Reeds magically turned into sugar canes. They still make paper. -- sugar can used to make cake
* A bunch of new crafting recipes -- tons
* One secret useful block -- dispenser?
* One secret pretty block -- sand stone? It doesn't fall like sand and also lapis lazuli a new ore found at the redstone level that can be used to make blue dyes.
* Cake
* Paintings work in multiplayer
* Disconnecting while riding no longer keeps the player in the world
* A bunch more state is properly synched in multiplayer
* Fixed colors going weird on PowerPC
* Fixed a horrible chunk reload loop in singleplayer
* Fixed most lighting bugs in newly generated SMP maps
* Falling sand behaves better in SMP
* Fixed a few crash on load level bugs
Different types of sheep: black, grey and white. They drop the colors they are.
Skeletons drop bones which can be used to make bone meal. Bone meal can used to make either white dye or use it to instantly grow wheat or trees!
Also spiders can now climb walls, so good luck with that.
