Looking around some more, it looks like the picture is from him and the labels are fan speculation.

Poopyhead pianoman ♫:
Is this supposed to be about a new world-generation algorithm?

Superman:
Yeah. He actually just posted an update on it. Sounds like a great step forward.

Too large oceans
Too uneven/random biome placement
Not enough variation

Too large oceans? Booo... I like the large oceans! I love the idea of sailing somewhat endlessly. Although I do like the idea of adding more islands.
I will agree with uneven biome placement. It is much more natural to progress from taiga to grassland to swamp, to jungle, for example.
Variation... I dunno. The Minecraft world can get pretty big. I think variation wasn't too much of an issue.

It is exciting, though, and I think I'll be rejoining the server soon.

That's the part I'm most excited about. It should clean up our map a lot too. I'm pretty sure biomes change even if land generation doesn't. We can smooth out our own land formations.
