You forgot a new food eating animation.

Dunno if this was posted in the 1.8 thread though.

What were those items that he was picking up and throwing in the last 10 seconds of the livestream? Must be something new, but it was too pixelated.

The longer you hold the left mouse button the more damage your bow will do !

I really can't wait to see how 1.8 will change everything up!  I'm also looking forward to the Xbox version.  It really should be epic.

He has confirmed MUCH more than what is in OP...

Larger height limit
Bigger Biomes
New lighting, no effect to performance
Endermen DO place and pickup blocks
New log in screen
Cobwebs are randomly generated in caves
Randomly generated MINESHAFTS
Bigger, better randomly generated dungeons
Spawn is most likely in/near a randomly generated village
Blood spurts out of killed creatures
New Bow attack animation
New eating mechanic
Sprint
No Seed influenced generation anymore
Anti-aliasing
The 1.8 update will possibly be split up into multiple parts, with most of the main features coming in a 1.8 patch and the little details and other features in a smaller patch like 1.8.2

And thats all I can remember at the moment...
