    I just love how world is generated now with swamps and mountains. Mby they should've made transition between bioms a bit smoother tho.

    I got the 1.9 Pre-release, but ever since, my server world has been laggy as hell. Like, I load it up and connect and it just freezes. I have to force-quit Minecraft to even close the window.
    Ah geez. I don't know what to do.

    I had much the same problem with this. If you're running 64bit windows (x64) then try installing the 64bit version of Java. If you install the default one, it will download the version for your browser, which is probably running in 32bit mode. You need to go to the Java download page and click on the "See all Java downloads" link to find the correct installer.

    Hope that helps

    I really like what they did with Swamp biomes. They look really dark and eerie, like a swamp should! I also like the Snow Golems. I've yet to find an actual Snow biome, but I've had my fun with creating a snowy army in creative mode. =)

    I want to make a courtyard full of snow golems with only one entrance. I'll then watch as mobs stream in and get pelted to death. Good times.

    Looking forward to the prospect of the villages doing something. When they are fully working and functional, it would be interesting to see if they would create snow golems themselves.

    it's tempting, but I have enough trouble with the buggy non-prerelease versions. >.<

    Had a quick fly around a new map just to see some of the new stuff, i didn't come across any village even though they were supposed to be there, Lilly pads in the bogs with the vines looks good, in the nether there was supposed to be bridges...it actually go's a bit further than that to just about give you castles..there's stuff grows in the nether now as well and a new mob (yellow thing that has crystals? rotating about it and throws fireballs)...yet to see the mushroom areas though

    All I can think about these prereleases is notch saying "Hey Mincrafters, we put a test in your test so you can test while you test"
