Just so that people who don't need to live on the bleeding edge don't  
get bitten: the latest version (0.9) of biblatex is not completely  
backwards compatible with v 0.8, so if you are currently using 0.8 and  
especially if you are using any of the extra styles that have been  
contributed by other users, Philip Lehmann strongly recommends that  
you wait until those styles have been updated before you update to v 0.9

If you want to try out older documents, then make sure you keep a copy  
of your older v 0.8 available (e.g. move it out of your local texmf  
tree and then test with 0.9 before actually getting rid of it.)

If you've never used biblatex, then I do highly recommend it, though.
