Mojang Studios, the developer of Minecraft, has just released a new update that brings in few changes for endermen and piglins. They have also fixed multiple bugs such as raids continuing after the villagers turn into a witch and game crashing issues after killing a mob with a guardian. The distortion effect while traveling into the nether can now be reduced, which is very helpful for players who get annoyed by it.
