So out of curiosity will all those bio parts that are mods now be included in the new version or will we have to wait a little while longer for those?

I'm guessing they won't be included in this next update. There are user-made blocks that Dirkson said he'd add that are over a year old now and still haven't been thrown in with an update. Blocks aren't really his concern right now. He's focusing more on getting the game to run efficiently and with fewer bugs, which he's doing an awesome job of with this update in particular. Though I'm super anxious to see Psyrek's organic parts implemented as well.
