    Well 'Slendermen' will be included it's a parody of the 'endermen'. There was a sneak peek of something that looked like flying in the clouds, notch hinted on more new mobs. There will most likely be a few new blocks. He has said a fully functional creative mode with flying and everything might be there as standard. MODDING API YESS! He promised to have official modding support! That's all I can remember.

    Did I hear something about sprinting in 1.8, I think I saw something like that on the Minecraft Wiki.
