Minecraft latest update 1.17 will surely bring a bunch of new features but you can access some of those new features right now by playing in snapshots if you are using the Java version. You would not be granted access to all new features, this does not mean that you should not try some of these newly added features.
One of the new features in Minecraft will let you make glass that does not absorb light but translucent at the same time. If you have been having trouble creating Tinted Glass in Minecraft then this guide will teach you the same in a simple way.
Minecraft: How to Create Tinted Glass
In order to make Tinted Glass in Minecraft, you need to have at least four Amethyst Shards and One Glass Block. In order to gather Amethyst Shards, you will have to look underground for Amethyst Geodes. These are underground areas where you will also get Budding Amethyst blocks, that cultivate Amethyst Clusters
To make Tinted Glass, you will have to place Sand in a Smelter. Now, combine all four Amethyst Shards and one block of Glass in a Crafting table. Doing this will create two Tinted Glass.

For the unversed, you can find Amethyst Geodes underground between sea level and bedrock. You will get to know if you come close to any if you run into a new material block, Tuff. That’s the outermost layer of an Amethyst Geode. Now, you will have to find Calcite and run into Amethyst Blocks.
In this circular area, you will find Budding Amethyst blocks. You would not be able to move the Budding Amethyst blocks, so you need to go back to the location to accumulate more if required. The best thing about Tinted Glass in Minecraft is it can be recovered like any other block if it broke.
