It's patch day.
Hopefully all addons remain working...

2.3.2 Patch Notes, Mirror at EJ

For a list of download mirrors i'd recommend looking at WowWiki for a nice list of your localisation.
Or a very good and crazy fast mirror is a.Wirebrain.de.

Some highlights
- Boat and zeppelin vendors and NPCs are back on duty.
- Reduced network latency by disabling the Nagle algorithm.

- Hunter Pet leveling speed has been increased.
- Druid Ravage: The damage multiplier on this ability has been increased from
350% to 385%.
- Paladin Crusader Strike (Retribution) now causes 110% of weapon damage and
no longer gains any bonus from spell damage.
- Mage Ice Block (Frost) is now available on the trainer to all mages at
level 30.
- Mage Icy Veins (NEW Frost Talent) decreases casting time of all spells by
20% and increases the chance your chilling effects will freeze the
target by 10%. Lasts 20 sec. 3 min cooldown. It is now in the Cold
Snap position in the talent tree.

- Ambush: The damage multiplier on this ability has been increased from
250% to 275%.
- Cheat Death: When multiple attacks land simultaenously, all those
resolved after the attack which triggered Cheat Death will now have
their damage reduced by 90% as intended. However, the combat log will
still report them doing full damage.
- Hemorrhage: Rank 4 of this ability no longer has its charges consumed
by non-physical attacks and spells.
- Hemorrhage weapon damage reduced from 125% to 110%, but the damage
debuff has been increased.
- Hemorrhage: This ability now correctly does additional damage when
its debuff has already been applied.
- Preparation now resets the cooldown of Shadowstep and no longer
resets the cooldown of Adrenaline Rush.
- Shadowstep now adds a 3 second, 70% movement speed increase.
- Sinister Calling now also increases the percentage damage bonus of
Hemorrhage and Backstab by 2/4/6/8/10%.

To find out how much these changes affect your rogue you can look at this spreadsheet, or this thread on the EJ forum. It seems to be a slight nerf, but it looks like it's still better to have at least one Tri-Spec hemo rogue in the raid than two combat ones.
It does kill Adrenalin Rush + Preparation builds for Arena though.

- Hex Shrunken Head: This item now has a 20 second shared cooldown with
other similar trinkets.

- Tempest Keep- The Eye
The number of Blood Elves guarding Prince Kael'Thas' room has been
( Turns out this is 2 Packs )

- Zul’Aman
The Amani'shi Warrior's Charge ability now has a minimum range.
The melee haste provided by Halazzi's Frenzy has been reduced to
