Many players are incredibly excited about the new wax mechanic. Previously, they would have to apply wax in the crafting UI. Fortunately, now they do not have to mine the block to apply wax.

In Minecraft Snapshot 21w11a, moss can now be used to craft mossy blocks. These blocks have been in Minecraft for a while without a simple way to craft them.

Fortunately, now Survival builders have an easier way to get mossy blocks.

These players asked for Mojang to implement a feature allowing players to create Azalea trees by bonemealing the bushes. Some players think that the devs will add this because Azalea tree leaves already drop bushes.
