RUMOR: Dota 2 "leaked" patch notes reveal native livestreaming, heroes
Disclaimer: none of this information is official! What we have here is a purported leak of ten changelogs for Dota 2 patches, and the numerous hero reveals that come out of this if you can read between the lines. If you're a Dota 2 fanatic, these changelogs could be your speculation-window into the future, letting you know whether or not your favorite hero will make it into the game. But know that any (if not all) parts of this leak could be fabricated, so take everything you read here with a massive grain of salt.
Perusing through the patch notes at Dota-two.com, the fansite that's deceptively similar to Valve's official Dota 2 page, there's a whole lot of details to chew on.

You can check out Dota-two's complete list of "confirmed" heroes to see the rest, and how each one came to light.

Believe these notes or not, but if you're eagerly anticipating Dota 2 like I am, perusing this leak will be a treat after Valve's relative radio silence.
