This is what it said.



■Fix for a crash with pistons at the edge of the world.
■Fix for a crash due to a thread safety issue usually caused by pistons.
■Fix for issue with operating pistons on chunk boundaries.
■Fix for a rendering flicker with active pistons.
■Fix for rendering slowdown due to lighting issues.
■Fix for rain going through blocks (raining indoors).
■Fix for Marketplace not launching when unlocking Skin Pack after selecting a locked skin in the trial version of the Skin Pack.
■Fix for bug allowing locked skins to be selected if they are beside a free skin.

■Fix for the constant button press sounds when rotating a character in the skin select screen.

Notable Bugs:
■When opening a door next to another, sometimes the top half of the other door opens as well and the door must be opened and closed to fix it
■On occasion, a hostile mob can spawn whilst trying to sleep even in a securely built location (fully lit, no corner pieces missing, closed doors) EDIT: You can temporarily fix this by either not using double doors, or if you have double doors, you have to keep the right-hand door open (from the side of which the doors open away from you).
■Glass does not fully allow light through and if next to another block i.e. stairs. Will show the side touching the glass completely black
