General

    • Mobs now avoid cacti and fire.
      • Blazes will not avoid fire.
    • Passive mobs following a player holding food will now go around water, if possible.
  • Entities panicking and on fire will preferentially run towards water within ±5 blocks horizontally and ±4 blocks vertically, even if they cannot actually reach it.
Shulkers
  • No longer attack in peaceful difficulty.
    • Shulker bullets despawn in peaceful, but not shulkers themselves.

Gameplay[]
