Hi,

10.10.2.0 has all the *new* functionality of 10.9.1.0 and 10.10.1.0. Plus
it has more bug fixes than 10.8.3.0, both because the 10.10 branch was
pulled from trunk at a later time and because 10.10.2.0 was released later
and thus even more fixes were back-ported. It therefore also has more
possible incompatibilities to older versions.
10.8.3.0 only has the most important fixes available at the time of release
back-ported, and has very few incompatibilities compared to e.g. 10.8.2.

There were some plans to make a 10.9.2 at one time but that fell by the
wayside. It would have replaced the 10.8.3.0.

Myrna
