Tyler,

I haven't seen either an 8.2 TODO or a 9.0 TODO as was with the BSD 8.1 
TODO wiki. However, there will be an 8.2. 9.0, as I understand it, is 
still a loooong ways off. Some news should be popping up soon as there's 
only 3+ months left to the bi-yearly update (if they're still sticking 
to that schedule). My hunch is an 8.2 by the end of January. Place your 
bets ladies and gents.
