I like the pace Autodesk comes with these updates.

Knowledge Base document: AutoCAD LT 2009 Update 2
Updates have been made in the following commands and features:
- Annotation Scaling
- Menu Browser
- Properties Palette
The following defects have also been fixed:
3D Navigation Tools - When you use the ViewCube in some drawings, AutoCAD freezes.
.NET API - If you create a wipeout object through .NET API, a fatal error may occur.
Annotation Scaling - The scale of annotative text changes when you use LISP entmod() to change the properties of the annotative text.
Attributes - When a drawing contains xrefs, the -ATTEDIT command fails.
Autodesk Buzzsaw - In the File Navigation dialog box, when you use the Add a Buzzsaw location shortcut option, AutoCAD crashes.
Blocks - When you copy and paste a dynamic block, associative hatches do not work. After you redefine a block definition, associative hatches in dynamic blocks display incorrectly. When you open a drawing, a polyline in a block may have a very large width. After you open a drawing, some dynamic blocks lose their dynamic properties.
Data Extraction - Data Extraction cannot finish operations in some cases. The Data Extraction Combine Record Mode > Sum values option does not work correctly.
DGN Support - When you import some DGN files, AutoCAD crashes.
DIM - If alternate units is on and you edit dimension text, the alternate units text is duplicated.
Export a Layout to Model Space - If .NET 3.5 Service Pack 1 is installed and you use the EXPORTLAYOUT command on some layouts, AutoCAD may stop responding.
Find - The FIND command performs slowly when you search for text.
Groups - Rollover highlighting does not go away.
Hatch - When you bind a drawing with an xref that contains annotative hatches, AutoCAD crashes.
Hide/Shade - When you use the HIDE command with a drawing that contains text, some objects may not be hidden.
Image - When you attach a corrupted raster image to a drawing, AutoCAD crashes.
Layer - When you zoom to a locked viewport, the Layer palette updates.
Layouts - When you attempt to switch layouts in drawings, an Out of Memory crash may occur.
Materials - When you import a 3DS file with texture, AutoCAD may crash.
Menu/Toolbar - Some menu macros do not work.
Multileader (mleader) - Mleader custom arrowheads are not brought over to the drawing from the Tool palette.
Multiline Text (mtext) - When you edit mtext in a viewport, it may be duplicated in other viewports.
Object Snaps - Osnaps on polylines and mesh objects do not work correctly.
Plot - When you plot upside-down, an OLE object does not plot correctly. A drawing that contains hatches and gradients may plot slowly. When plot area is set to View, AutoCAD LT may crash.
Publish - When you attempt to publish multiple sheets with PUBLISHCOLLATE=1, only the first sheet of the set is plotted.
Quick Properties - When you edit multiple mtext objects through the Quick Properties palette, AutoCAD crashes.
Render - When you render some drawings, AutoCAD runs out of memory.
Ribbon - If the ribbon is displayed and you select portions of a mtext object that contains multiple formats, the mtext object becomes distorted.
Selection - When you select objects in groups, AutoCAD may crash.
Tables - When you edit text with space before or after the text within a table cell, AutoCAD crashes.
Text - When you move text to a new position within a drawing, it disappears.
Tool Palettes -When you attempt to edit the properties of multiple Tool Palette tools, an Out of Memory crash may occur.
