Not quite, but neat idea. Notch is improving the lighting system.

Remember how many chunk updates there are when the sun sets or rises in Minecraft? In 1.7 there are zero.

I put lighting data in a second texture, u is skylight, v is blocklight. To fade skylight, I just dynamically change the texture data.

Quote
Also, this means that skylight and blocklight can have different colors now. Nights are brighter, but tinted blue now. Blocklights are warm.

Hence why the lighting colors look different.

That's neato. That should make the transition look far less kludgy as well as give off a different sort of visual effect.

Also, here's the piston progress.
It also solves another problem/request people have had for awhile at around 2:07.

That's cool but I sorta feel bad for the guy that originally made it as a mod. Seeing loads of comments in the youtube thread like "Notch is a genius!"
No way dude, you're trolling me.

Notch is a genius!

Look at that hidden door. :O

Also, slime balls have a use, finally.

Edit: Wait, he didn't show what happens when you place a piston on a (sticky) piston. You could easily create elevators if it would work the way I think it would.

Edit 2: Omg, we can now fit the pyramid with actual traps. D:

Edit 3: Omg omg, if we had a block that destroys other blocks and one that can place other blocks we could create automated treefarms.

Edit 4: Omg omg omg I need to breathe.

Edit 5: Omg omg omg omg he DID show it. You can stack pistons on top of each other. WE CAN BUILD ELEVATORS NOW!

The mod works differently. Also did anyone else notice they had torches on fences.

I did, but to be honest, it was just a matter of time until that was implemented. >_>

As an aside, I can't login to minecraft today. Anyone else got the problem?

Minecraft was hacked by the same people who shut down EVE Online. XD That's why it's down.

I think those are torches near a pool of water. Even with smooth lighting on, water blocks are still shaded blocky. So it isn't blue lighting if that's what you're thinking.

No, it's not blue light.  But it's a better lighting model which allows for different colored lights, and colored shadow, which makes for much better ambiance.  
Here's another example outside.  You can see the bluish tint to the darkness, and the orange tint to the torch.

Right now it's just white light and grey darkness.  Bleh.  

But after the better lighting, he needs to put in some ambient sound, like wind, ocean, crickets, etc. like in the track Death from the OST.
