I know this is a little late, but I'm here to talk about Minecraft update 1.1. Now the thing about this update is that there is so much bias about the big fixes that it is over whelming.
First, I think that personally Notch got the wrong idea when people where yelling at him to fix the ladders. I do like that the side and bottoms of the ladders having their collision boxes removed. But I think a lot of people really liked the idea of being able to stand on the ladders and standing on ladders made it fun on parkor maps where you jumped from ladder to ladder. I still think even with no collision boxes on the sides and bottoms of ladder that you should still be able to stand on the ladders.
