This week, Minecraft developers have surprised Bedrock players with an update instead of a beta version. Minecraft Bedrock 1.17.30 is the biggest update players have seen since the Caves and Cliffs Part 1 release.
Minecraft Bedrock 1.17.30 introduces many features under the experimental Caves and Cliffs option like mob spawning changes, ore veins, noodle caves, and more. Developers have also added a couple of new features for players still enjoying Caves and Cliffs Part 1.
Bedrock Edition players can now use a new rule called "Respawn Blocks Explode" to prevent respawn anchors and beds from exploding. Developers have also added corner mode to the structure blocks.
