It's not like every single user on Minecraft forums has access to loads of secret information on 1.8 and when it will come out. Asking us for a "hint" will probably do nothing, as we're just as informed/uniformed as you.
Notch or Jeb mentioned they're shooting for sometime in September for 1.8.
Also, there's a big giant thread about 1.8 on the top of the forum page, and it has every single piece of leaked/speculated/confirmed information about 1.8 on it. No need for a whole new thread.
“Daddy, I had a bad dream.”You blink your eyes and pull up on your elbows. Your clock glows red in the darkness — it’s 3:23. “Do you want to climb into bed and tell me about it?”“No, Daddy.”The oddness of the situation wakes you up more fully. You can barely make out your daughter’s pale form in the darkness of your room. “Why not, sweetie?”“Because in my dream, when I told you about the dream, the thing wearing Mommy’s skin sat up.”For a moment, you feel paralyzed; you can’t take your eyes off of your daughter. The covers behind you begin to shift.
