I seem to recall some discussion about why 8 is in the base system and not 9
on this list some time ago. As far as I remember, the default is still
version 8 because it would take a great deal of work to switch to version 9
- time which is better spent by those who can on other work.
Version 9 is quite stable. It includes various neat features that aren't
available in 8, as well. Go with it. It works very well for me.
