Minecraft has published Snapshot 21w06a, the latest Java Edition snapshot for the 1.17 Caves & Cliffs Update!
This update introduces new cave generation and increases the height & depth of the world! An additional 64 blocks have been added to both the upper and lower build limits, allowing for depths of y=-64 and height of Y=320. This allows for new deeper caves with Aquifers - localized water levels - and new types of cave generation nicknamed 'Spaghetti' and 'Cheese' caves!
In this video, I explore these features in Survival Minecraft before breaking out Spectator and Creative mode to get an overview of the changes.
There's plenty more to these updates, and you can find the full changelog here: https://www.minecraft.net/en-us/article/minecraft-snapshot-21w06a
