Did Matt Smith slip his true intentions, or was it just a slip of the tongue when he said he had only one more year of Doctor Who? Your returning host (and thank you so much for your support while I've been gone) pretends to know what he's talking about.

Ugh, I'm so sick of the misreading of his words! He's already said he WILL stay for the 50th anniversary. He said ANOTHER year of Who before he works in LA, which does not mean it's his last year. The scheduling now allows for actors to work on other things inbetween seasons, presumably one of the biggest factors contributing to the shift to an Autumn season.
I also don't know where this ridiculous notion comes from that Moffat or Matt Smith lie. If it's referring to Moff saying the Daleks won't be back in series 7, he didn't lie, because a)The Daleks didn't really return as an enemy, just a cameo, and b) he added that brief scene with the Dalek at the last minute, most likely after his statement, as a last-minute way of avoiding a whole lot of exposition.
As far as I know, Moffat, as never lied on or off-screen. Hiding plot points or details of events isn't lying at all (despite him making a joke about it in a preview screening)
I'm really hoping it was just a case of misspeaking, because Matt was actually my first Doctor before I went back and started to re-watch the new and old series. I feel he easily brings a charisma to the role that makes you believe the character is as old has he is. Plus, I want more single off adventures with him that aren't involved with some long, drawn out, timey whimey story arc that has yet to answer the major questions that were presented from his first series (i.e., who blew up the TARDIS).
