The Minecraft Xbox 360 history wiki page explain the 1.1 update "Added a few other things for players to discover" (to the tutorial). I'm assuming this applies to regular game play as well.

So far I've seen:

  • Shears
  • Regular and Sticky Piston
  • Slime as an ingredient (and presumably as a drop or world item?)
  • Main menu purchase options (non in-game items)
  • Cosmetic changes as mentioned on the wiki (e.g. more appetizing pork chops)

What else does this release add?

    Things to discover ;)

The full changelog is listed on Mojang's website (copied below).

The line you mention, "Added a few other things for players to discover," is in the Tutorial World section. Therefore I suspect it just means they added some cool touches to the tutorial world to demonstrate the use of new items (pistons, stacked fences, etc), to add to its charm. They may have added some little easter eggs to this world too, but I can't say for sure.

Minecraft: XBox 360 Edition July 2012 Update Changelog: http://www.mojang.com/2012/07/minecraft-xbox-360-edition-update-is-out/

Wikwocket is correct, the "new things to discover" refers to the tutorial world. A few of the new items:

  • A new piston/redstone tutorial test area that has a chest full of pistons, redstone, and other components
  • Self-building/repairing cobblestone bridge maker at the castle
  • New lava moat in front of the castle
  • More sugarcane, cactus, and pumpkins around the map (the prior tutorial had no sugarcane altogether)
  • A curious lever on the end of the floating minecraft sign that takes you somewhere interesting :)
  • Something even MORE interesting down a glowstone-lined underwater tunnel near the castle :O
  • +1 -- I found that lever but missed the underwater tunnel. :-) Commented Mar 7, 2013 at 1:40
