"Mozilla.org recently updated the Mozilla Roadmap to reflect the crash landings that necessitated the 0.8.1 release. Groups embedding Mozilla are encouraged to target 0.9.1 for their beta branch point. 0.9.1 is currently slated for release May 25th."

The tree has closed for 0.9, so expect to start seeing 0.9 test build on ftp.mozilla.org next week at some time.

For one thing, there's a problem with bookmarks, see <http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=76502>

I don't have the bug number on hand, but a fix was implemented so that plug-ins are now "lazy loaded." This means that plug-ins are not loaded until they are used the first time, as opposed to being all loaded on startup, which was the case before. This is a great start-up performance boost to those who have a bunch of plug-ins.

PSM2 has been in for a week now, and there are probably some kinks to work out with it but let me say that my browsing experience got SOOOO much better with PSM2! Visiting secure sites is a hell lot more responsive.
