We suggest that all Joomla! users upgrade to this version. 

1.0.9 contains the following changes:

Although this release contains 12 security fixes, as they are of a low level nature, this release is being characterized as a Stabiility/General release.  If you are running 1.0.8, you are advised to upgrade to 1.0.9 as it fixes several annoying non-critical errors in 1.0.8

1.0.9 is available as a Full Package, which contains all Joomla! files and Patch Packages which contain only the files that have been changed by the Stability work conducted from previous Joomla! 1.0.x versions.
