The 'Creeping Winter' DLC for Minecraft Dungeons has finally been announced and now Minecraft itself has been updated. This bumps the game up to version 1.16.20 and adds new features, makes some crafting interface changes, and resolves a bunch of issues.
Perhaps the most exciting part of the update is the Piglin Brute - a mob that isn't distracted by gold like its their foolish cousins and won't run away in fear. Here's some extra information about Piglin mobs from official the Minecraft Twitter account:

Have you downloaded the latest update for Minecraft yet? Notice anything else? Leave a comment down below.
First! And I can deal with them without this update, I'll be steering far clear, thanks 🙃
Is it possible for a total minecraft noob to get into the game the way it is now? Every update makes it more intimidating to start it
I guess more deaths for me in Minecraft 😑
@Moonlessky I have to agree. I love Minecraft for its world building and creative aspects, which is where Minecraft really shines in my opinion, but it seems they are intent on adding a mish-mash of game features and fairly obscure items, potions, and mobs instead. I enjoy playing in survival as well, and I'm really not impressed with content like this. Very obscure, predictable content.
@Moonlessky The updates add more, but don’t make it harder to start. A lot of them make it easier to start.
@Moonlessky just try creative first off, and see if you like all the new stuff. Then go into survival.
@Menardi They are trying to appeal to both the survival players and creative players at the same time. It’s like having to manage 2 communities at once and there are really 3 because there is also the map making community which use the random potions and stuff.
@MeowMeowKins I think that starting in survival is better because the new stuff is usually later game content that doesn’t effect starting.
@bobzbulder Maybe. I would simply recommend creative so you can see what it's like in the game without having to worry about accidentally walking into a creeper spawner.
The game still has loads of sound issues. I reported it and they just marked it as a duplicate... Goes to show they really don't care. No matter how many times they hear it, they don't bother to fix it.
@Menardi Let's not forget they are aware of bugs, but don't bother to fix them. If a report is a duplicate, they mark it as such. If you keep hearing the same problem from multiple people, fix it already to shut them up.
I play creatively in the survival mode to keep things interesting, New tough monsters arent really a good thing for me. In fact it kinda sucks the way I play this game.
@Moonlessky minecraft’s core gameplay has always been simple and easy to understand. all these updates are just bonus!
@Bermanator of course they close the duplicates. You don‘t want multiple entries for the same bug, otherwise you would need to investigate the same bug twice, that then would probably already been fixed. You are free to comment the existing oldest bug report.
Maybe there are other (game breaking) bugs more important to be fixed first. Or older bugs. Or easier bugs. Or special schedules. So it is good, that you report errors, but relax.
@MeowMeowKins Creative is boring. Survival is what's fun.
@NorseGamerTommy In your eyes is the key here. It's exciting if you, per se, want to create a theme park. All depends on what you want to do.
@MeowMeowKins There are no creeper spawners.
@tofarawaytimes They spawn in peaceful.
@Bermanator They mark it as a duplicate so that there aren’t 1,000 reports of the same bug. That doesn’t mean that they aren’t working on it it just means that someone else reported it. They also have to fix bugs for at least 6 platforms along with bring the new content to them. There are too many bugs, but they are trying to fix them.
I love that they clearly took inspiration from Zelda's Moblins/Bokoblins.
@bobzbulder I'm an idiot, and anything I say shouldn't be taken seriously. That's the moral of this story, I guess
@MeowMeowKins You probably just don’t play Minecraft too often no big deal.
@vanYth The bugs they have been fixing were hardly issues.
@Moonlessky - Being rather experienced in how the game works, I never thought it might seem intimidating to outsiders. I don't think it's that complex to start, give it a try.
@Bermanator - Mojang's not in fact ignoreing the community and not fixing bugs. I haven't heard of the one you're referring to but rest assured they'll get to it eventually if they're not already working on it. They're not the kind to slouch off on these.
@Jokerwolf - I suppose it could look like that if you don't play it, but they're actually inspired by another mob that's been in the game for a while, as in from the early versions a while. I wouldn't be surprised to hear they took inspiration, but I think in this case they're just expanding off of something they already had.
Also, this is my first comment on here! Glad to now be a part of this community!
@FlaviusFire The sound issue I mentioned has been a problem for a few years at this point.
