First of all, welcome to the forums. First post, I see.

Some sort of tool tip that tells you what something and the stats for it. (I let a pile of iron sit in my chest forever because I thought it was only clay!)
There is going to be a tutorial, will this really be neccecary?
A Shield that you can bring up with the Right mouse button when the sword is out.
Fair enough, this is a decent idea, as long as you have to craft it. Also, please use the search function.
Money, and a merchant ship where you can sell all the junk you do not want and buy the resources you have not found enough of.
NO. Just no. If currency is ever added, it will merely for some villages/towns to trade with, not for NPCs or anything. Players should have to earn what they want, not just buy it. Plus, some people don't live near the ocean.
An option for an infinite view distance for those people with a faster PC.
But what if you're on top of a mountain? Your PC won't handle seeing miles and miles of land as well as you'd like it, I'd vouch. Also, it's unrealistic to see very far away. The current distance you can see at the most is pretty good.
Also, higher resolution textures, so we can tell the the heck it is.
Well, first of all, the obvious view of pixels is a sort of feature-sort-of-thing of Minecraft. It makes it look pretty nice, and anyway, you can easily tell what something is.
Some sort of mineral detector. So that I can see if this mountain has the ore I am looking for.
As long as it had a short range, fine. Also, did I mention "use the search function"?
A hang glider! I just want to jump off every time I climb to the top of the mountain........
A good idea, it would be great if you could ride the winds with it also. But again, search function.
In a final development it would be cool to have NPC's, dungeons, and quests. So that after I have my castle and farm running I still have something to do.
We have NPC's, we have dungeons (not that good, just a small room, but I'm sure Notch is working on it), and I doubt Notch will add quests, except maybe on Adventure mode.
Some method to hold livestock in or out of an area. They keep trampling my crops, and the fence never stops them. I would also like to be able to raise livestock.
Get rid off all grass inside your fence, and all terrain allowing you or animals to jump into your place. Also, use search. Have I mentioned that yet?
Good suggestion, already suggested. Search.
Make water level out to sea level. I am trying to irrigate but the water level drops way too fast, especially when it should not level out at all.
Use search, lots of people want better water mechanics also. Yes, we do need some better ones. But until then, the current ones will work fine if you place one water in every block.
Something to do with the fishing pole.
What do you think Notch is doing, for goodness sake?
Make all animals, and monsters have at least some sort of a drop every time. I killed 10 pigs before I got a piece of meat, and 4 spiders before I got a string.
That's an exaggeration.
Sorry, but also, you should only have one suggestion per thread. This will proberly be moved to the "wishlist" forum.
Once again, welcome to the forums.
