Patch 4.2: New achievements include new daily areas and companion pets
Tons of new achievements have been added to the PTR for the upcoming patch 4.2, including the Molten Front and the Regrowth achievements. Blizzard has stated that a bunch of the encounters in the new daily hubs will be directly linked to "raid-type" damage dodging and healing, so it is nice to see achievements for some of those feats.

Some of the achievements hint at some awesome characters showing up in unexpected places, like Have... Have We Met?, potentially getting Mankrik, Thassarian, Linken, and more on the front lines in Hyjal and the Firelands. Also, pet collectors are going to jump for joy, as collecting 100, 125 and 150 pets now rewards players with pet biscuits for 100 and 125, and a new pet, Nuts, at the 150 mark.

Zul'Aman bear runners will be happy to know that Bear-ly Made It is now a reward for completing an Amani War Bear run.

The most interesting achievement, however, is WoW's 7th Anniversary, which allows the player to transform the appearance of their tabard but still retaining the bonuses the tabard grants. What could the tabard turn into? Who knows?! Potentially something awesome, I'm sure.

While it isn't tied to an achievement, this build also brought us a Keg Pony for Brewfest, not to be confused with a Pony Keg.
