Tweet from Jeb_ (As you know I always forget at least one thing when upload a release... The "camera controls" (F6 etc) are not supposed to be there =/) So..don't get your hopes up. Though these features are really nice for everyone..except the flying in survival mode.
Toggle fly with F6. Survival mode.
You receive a warning when changing render distance to far only if you're not running Java x64.
Option to turn off clouds in the video menu.
Textures/Liquid Movement Mechanics
New Water Physics for vertical movement.
Water is back the way it was before pre4, plus:
Whenever a water source is surrounded on all sides by blocks or water (not necessarily source blocks) and it has an air block or (non source) water block below, then that air/water block turns into a water source. From Darquan (I think it is intentional. It eliminates the underwater currents when you place and remove a block. The behaviour seems to be carefully chosen such that it cannot automatically flood entire caves, nor does it seem to break typical ways of using water for automatic harvesting.) Bug.
Water can be placed in water again.
"End Stone" (from The End) and "Mycelium" from the Mushroom biome!
Lava can be made infinite by digging 1 square down, and making a "plus" sign - 5 squares total. Fill the outsides with lava.
