The next big game version, 1.5.0 (or just 1.5) will be "The Redstone Update", I believe.  So it's all about redstone, and I believe there will be some new redstone-related stuffs.

Animals keep glitching in and out of My farm pin that I Have made, is there any possible way that this can be fixed, I really hope someone that can do something about this can fis this problem.Side note... I would also like to see more food types added to the game (just one really but others are nice too) I want to be able to cook and eat eggs by themselves, also a meal made out of several of the other food items would be appriciated.

Notch is no longer actively coding the game, and pistons can already be placed upright.

It would be cool if in every update you get more recent tech so you don't need to get mods for the items you want you can just wait for an update.
