The Withering Effect - Minecraft Podcast / Episode 91: The Butter Beans update?

Episode notes

In this episode, DuDs and Jimbo discuss the recent announcement from Mojang that the Caves and Cliffs update will be split into two. The first will be 1.17, which will be released in summer without the new world height or cave generation (although a datapack will be available); this update will include the Goat, Axolotl and Glow Squid along with the new blocks, items and ores. The second update, which will be known as 1.18, is planned for release around the holiday season and will include all the new generation of caves and cliffs. Unfortunately, archaeology will not be included in either of these updates and will be released at a later date. Plus, we have snapshot, 21w15a, for Minecraft 1.17, that allows the Goat to ram anything that moves, including armor stands, among many other changes. Also, we have listener comments from High Hopes, Beanman6649 and DirtyBlonde655 and a very topical Mending Minecraft.
