Mojang Studios, the developer of Minecraft, released a new update for beta testers that adds a new experimental toggle mode along with some new content. The developers have also added goats into Minecraft. You can find the goats on the mountains, but be careful around the goats as you can be pushed off the mountain cliffside.

Powdered snow is also a new addition that can slow down players, but you can use the leather boots to make your journey across the snowy mountains easier.
