Well they have announced PDF support for the Kindle 2.
They've announced you can rotate the Kindle 2 screen just like the Kindle DX. [Edit: manual rotation so not exactly like the Kindle DX]
They've announced that the screen saver won't pop on for 20 minutes (instead of 5).

I'm also happy about stripping the margins on PDFs when they are rotated. I have a PDF graphic novel that is just a little too small to read in portrait and switching to landscape didn't help with the wide margins. Now I should be able to read the stinking thing.

The above is for the latest software upgrade, but they also announced that in the first half of the year that they will start supporting folders/tags (or something similar).

I'm really starting to like Amazon.

[EDIT -- Added text below]

I hope they announce ePub support as some point, even if it is non-DRM ePub support only.
