Yes, you heard it right — Minecraft, one of the most successful games in the world, is to release its pre-release 1. Interesting features were added to make the game even more customizable and fun!
According to its official website, the pre-release will allow players to customize cave generation and add new custom structures in the world. The update is expected on 28 February.
Technical changes in Minecraft
Soon, Minecraft will lose its 32-bit environment support
The data pack version is now 9
It is now possible to add custom structures in experimental datapacks
locate and locatebiome commands now support tags (prefix with # to distinguish from normal ids)
The locate command parameter is now a configured structure rather than a structure type. For instance, you can now use /locate village_desert or /locate shipwreck_beached
A lot of the cave generation is now configurable through data packs
A new registry was added for Density functions (caves are created by combining those together)
Noise settings got a new field noise_router (and lost a couple of flags), see worldgen/noise_settings folder in the worldgen report
Noise router wires data-driven parts of the cave generation with the rest of the code
Minecraft customizable structures
Experimental datapacks can add new structure sets
The feature field in location predicates now references a configured feature
The exploration_map loot table function destination field is now a configured feature tag id
The exploration_map loot table function no longer automatically sets the display name of the map
