    * Magma Block
    * Red Nether Brick
    * Nether Wart Block
* Modernized the Chunky User Interface by rewriting it in JavaFX.
* Most of the UI remains similar to the old version, but some parts
  were redesigned:

    * The gradient editor and color pickers were slightly redesigned.
    * Added some sky gradient presets.

* Fixed player entities not being saved if they were the only entity type in a
  scene.

    * Removed the chunk loading indicator icon.
    * Removed the player Y position indicator.
    * Removed fullscreen preview.
* Added new command-line options:
    * Added -list-scenes command.
    * Added -merge-dump command.
    * Made it possible to manually set the Chunky settings directory using a
      system property (java -Dchunky.home=DIR).

* Rendering improvements and fixes:
    * End rods now emit light.
    * Vertical droppers and dispensers are now rendered correctly.
