Alrighty thanks for the psd... here is what I think:

Gave a little more head bounce and to a minor extent shoulder bounce at footfalls.
Pronounced shoulder and arm swing and giving a bit more weight.
Made arms more held out from the body.
Gave him minor zigzag movement.
Overall minor tweaks everywhere and smoothing some movement.

Hmm thoughts?

The movement of his near (his right) foot, once planted on the ground, seems a touch too "arc-ish" (my intuition says it ought to be a little straighter during that section). Then again, my intuition is highly questionable on this particular subject.

Generally, though, it's an all-around improvement. Wonderful stuff. :) I'm seeing all the little fixes you made, and will try to make mental note of them on future sprites.
