I really kinda hope the pre release isn't coming soon. This update had the potential for so much more stuff, and with Jeb being back this week (or maybe last week too I'm not sure), I thought we'd surely get more.

It is possible that they will add new saplings in the official release, to make the release also more a suprise and to give it a real finished feel, but we just have to wait...
I feel like that would ruin the point of the pre-releases. Then again, Mojang is pretty good at ruining the point of pre-releases since they release a bugfix version a day or two after the update is officially out.
Call me a pessimist, but now that Mojang has confirmed that there will be a prerelease soon I feel like the new trees won't be getting their own wood types. What a shame, seems like it's very sloppy as-is.

Did something happen to you in your childhood to give you this unreasonable fear of rutabaga?

New important features in snapshot: Stained glass is much more transparent and nice, more transparency issues with ice/water are fixed, witches may now rarely spawn anywhere it is dark similar to a normal mob, new custom sounds can be added in resource packs then played using /playsound, and maps have many more new colors! The full bug list that was fixed is available at https://mojang.atlassian.net/secure/ReleaseNote.jspa?projectId=10400&version=13701

They would need stairs which would require a new block for a "secondary stairs". Messy because all the existing Stairs are one block, and then there will be this added one that has the 'new wood' I don't see why new wood would be needed. Every single biome doesn't need it's own special snowflake tree with it's own wood and planks and so forth.
Is it just me, or does the draw distance setting not work right in all of these snapshots?
I have to go back to 1.6.4 (which is what I've been doing) if I want the bloody draw distance settings to actually, you know, work. I see it can now be set to 16.... which does literally nothing at all. 12 seems to be the ACTUAL max; not as far as can be seen in 1.6. View is definitely... shortened.
Dont suppose there's some way around this issue? Knowing Mojang, if this is a glitch like I think it is, it's likely to be there for awhile. I like them alot as a developer but they're usually really bad (or just really slow) at bug-squashing.
For now I'll likely just stick with 1.6.4. The lowered view distance just bugs me too much.
Indeed. That, and the server console is still somewhat broken in that all I can see is memory usage, average tick, and whichever players are connected. I was hoping for proper Savannah logs/saplings, it's not a bit deal, I'll just not chop them down...
lol.. 1. that is old. as in a couple of snapshots ago. 2. look at all the files in the server files. there should be a log file. open it. open the txt file. there you go. note. they fixed the stained clay showing up on a map gray.

I could live with the new tree types using one of the 3 existing wood types, but not being able to grow them back is limiting. Acacia trees dropping saplings that turn into oak trees makes absolutely no sense and among all the surrounding acacia trees oak trees look out of place.
Unfortunately because of this I had to make my home base out of oak wood, since there are not enough acacia trees in the nearby area to supply me with enough jungle wood, and even if there was I wouldn't want to live in a savannah that has oak trees instead of acacia trees as far as the eyes can see, so I opted for maintaining the environment and instead grow a bunch of oak trees in a small area near my base.
