Nice work! :)

Will there be any MTG changes?

Also, what do you mean by "breath cheat"? Do you mean we can't breath at underwater torches and papyrus anymore?

ABJ, no, breath cheat = modified client can prevent sending breath to server because before 0.4.16 is was calculated client side and not server side. With this version it's not possible to ignore breath update, then hack removed

Diamond, golden, copper, bronze stairs/slabs don`t exist.Sole is steel ones.

My suggestions:
1.Add some mobs (for instance, simple mobs and take a few mobs from Mobs Redo (bees, horses, mese monsters, lava flans and spiders).
2.Add the section in Minetest`s menu to enable download mods directly from there.I remember like section was somewhere before, but i don`t exactly remember.
3.Also add special sections with different announcements and news in menu, too.
4.Improve Minetest`s site (although it doesn`t concern to minetest`s version, but i just suggest, too.
5.Also improve menu of minetest (It looks is too dark and unsightly, i consider so.

But what about adding of blocks and other items i have nothing

Dunno about you, but those look like gold, copper, and bronze stairs to me...
The only one that doesn't exist is diamond.

To clarify the confusion about gold stais/slabs/etc.:

See here:
http://wiki.minetest.net/Stair
http://wiki.minetest.net/Slab

For gold, it is called “Gold Block Stair” and “Gold Block Slab” and must be crafted from gold blocks. Similar for steel, copper and bronze.

ABJ - Yup, Nyan Cat has been removed completely from 0.4.16 release so if you want it back with PBJ_Pup added for good measure try this: https://github.com/tenplus1/pbj_pup

Very nice! :D Probably needs a bit of documentation how to manage players e.g. from command line as some admins do things like purging old player files. Maybe even create a couple of scripts for the various backends? Just checked myself using the sqlite client and looks pretty straight forward, but it might not be for everyone...

This would be a good time to start to bundle a CLI for managing players and similar in database.

Why does everyone hate ABJ so much? I'm quite new to the forum,so I don't know much about the community yet

You don't like it — don't use it. It's simple.

I find zoom feature very useful.

What the hell, Sergey, I meant the requirement to have zoom privilege to zoom. I want zoom without that privilege.

Zoom as default player action? Then I support this suggestion.

Sorry for misunderstanding.
