The 21w39a snapshot was released to Minecraft. What news can you find in it?

Another snapshot has been introduced to Minecraft. What did the designers change this time?

Minecraft is one of the few games that, regardless of how long they are on the market, will receive updates that make the productions enjoy constant popularity. In the case of Minecraft, this is mainly due to the distinctive, aging graphics that were never intended to pursue realism.

For some time, players have been able to follow the actions of developers who are working on elements that are very important to the game – caves and cliffs. What does the latest snapshot change?
