The 1.20 Minecraft Update is mostly done at this point. It is currently receiving its final touches in the form of so-called “pre-releases”. These versions will mostly consist of bug fixes and are not expected to add new major gameplay features.
All of the 1.20 Pre-Releases come with the brand-new features. The chiseled bookshelf, the new wood types, cherry blossom biome and the winner of the mob vote, the Sniffer. And of course also all the other features from the 1.20 Trails and Tales Update, such as suspicious sand and hanging signs.
