Account-wide Mounts now on Beta
It was announced during the Mists of Pandaria Press Tour that mounts would become account-wide on release or in a patch shortly after. It looks like it will be release after all, and the feature is now available on beta (but heavily bugged).

I present to you, my mage riding my paladin's mount! (Obviously, we have no way to know if this is intended as part of the account-wide mounts)

Pandaren Voices now on Beta
Pandaren Voices are now also partially available on beta. For the moment only a few NPCs will talk to you but it should give you a good idea of where the game is headed for their voices.

Scarlet Monastery Cathedral bug on Beta
Yep, the collision on the cathedral door is indeed totally broken and you can't get to the last boss. We'll fix this as soon as we can, but it might take a beta update or two for the fix to reach you all. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

PvP and bringing the "War" back in World of Warcraft
We're with you on the idea of getting people engaged in PvP again within the world. As I've said previously though, we have to be careful about how we do that. We'll hopefully have more information for you all on what we have planned that will assuage some fears of those who aren't very PvP passionate, while (hopefully) still making PvP compelling for those who do love taking part. (Raises her hand) While we have many players who enjoy PvP, we have a larger contingent that enjoys PvE more. That makes maintaining balance between the concepts a bit more challenging, but we love challenges.

As far as the story goes, we've talked a bit about that and what's coming is twofold. War is coming to Pandaria, which (while it's had its strife in the past) is largely a peaceful region of Azeroth. That's going to change as the Horde and Alliance start stirring up the dust of the past. Beyond what happens in Pandaria, the Horde and Alliance will be at each others' throats once more. We've mentioned it many times before, but we really do feel that the "war" of Warcraft is going to be featured a bit more prominently in the story. It may not necessarily translate to all out chaos in a direct PvP way, but it will definitely be seen playing out in the storyline itself.

Again, we'll try to bring you more information specifically about the PvP end of our plans (more detail of what was heard from the press event) and get everyone caught up to speed on what we hope this will mean going forward. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

    Sweet, makes having obtained one of those ultra-rare mounts even better, since you don't have to grind it again on your alts... i wish i had even 1 of those Q_Q

    Hopefully people don't cry about having the rare mounts now. Now this makes for more incentive to go for them.

    Love the mount feature.

    Voices don't sound too bad.

    This is fantastic news! Now I can officially start farming for the drop mounts on alts instead of just my main.

    I wouldn't mind mounts being restricted by level (I couldn't ride a mount I can only use starting at level 70 on a level 20 alt, for example) but other than that, this rules. I am so psyched.

    Oh sweet heavens rejoice! Now all those rare mounts I accumulated on my paladin can finally be ridden by my new main, my hunter! This makes me a happy panda.

    I'm glad it will make it at the release.
    Wondering how this will work for unobtainable mounts like Amani War bear, Plagued Proto Drake & Black Qiraji Battle Tank.....

    Headless Horseman's Mount on my main! Finally! (along with the Frigid Frostling and Lumpy seasonal pets)

    So this means Account wide mounts so can now Horde use Alliance mounts and Alliance use Horde mounts ?

    That's great! I will finally have my Razzashi Raptor on my main instead of my two alts!
