This update contains a bunch of optimizations and improvements to mob movement. Along with mobs moving more accurately, these improvements will mostly be noticed in new ways that we can do summoned mobs and how they behave. You can see an example of over 50 summoned baby zombies in the GIF below :D
There are also some item improvements, like being able to right click on and with items to do custom actions. Many items that you "open" is now done this way and you can now focus mobs with summon weapons.
The update doesn't add too much new stuff, but lays a foundation of what's to come and more possibilities like item inventories, new summon gear and more.
