Yes, As allways, Bug fixes are continuously going into Trunk and the  
latest stable branch. New functionality however doesnt go in, So breakage  
of 95% of plugins should be minimal.

However, A lot of Plugins (all of mine including) were broken by the  
security additions in 2.8, It was necessary to solve it.. But.. The only  
reason our plugins broke, was because we werent using the API as we were  
supposed to.. which was actually half of the security problem(I think).. I  
notice Peter just posted a link, which should explain that a bit better..
