Right now, the falling block entity will not change it's appearance when it's block value is updated. So if the block is sand and I change it to stone, it'll still appear like sand until it lands.
Why is this important?
Falling blocks give mapmakers, datapack makers, ect, to play with blocks in ways never seen before.
Remember the aether mod?
It had an ore that could fall upwards, creating an interesting mining challenge. Something like this would be easily possible in vanilla with this update.
Isn't this a glitch?
No. It's been reported to the bug tracker before and is not technically classed as a bug.
