Beta users rejoice, the developers have flipped a few switches today and we see the addition of Crafting and Smelting as well as Adventures for users in Seattle.
Beta users can now access the Crafting and Smelting section which allows them to craft more blocks or smelt items. Crafting and Smelting take time to Craft/Smelt and the more of the item you want the longer it takes. Each item has a different recipe and time.
All items take time to smelt/craft. Also the more of that item you try to smelt/craft the longer it takes

Adventures are also appearing for users in Seattle. These allow users to get rare items and as we have seen in the previews sometimes even diamonds.

Adventures can be completed with friends and all users will receive every item thats collected in the adventure. So if one player gets diamonds everyone gets diamonds. This encourages teamwork with more players completing the adventure all getting the same rewards.
