Alright, just installed CM11 M9. First thing I notice is that with CM10, sitting on my couch, my Nook HD+ had a "Fair" WiFi signal. With CM11, it won't even connect.

Did you do a clean install (with "wipe /data & factory reset" while in CWM)?

Yes, I did. Turned out, I just needed to reset my router. Still not a strong signal, though. I have noticed that the battery doesn't seem to last as long now. I'll keep playing with it to make sure it's not just my imagination.

In general I am very happy with CM.

Thanks everyone for your comments.
I use repligo pdf reader and have used it on some very large pdfs with no problems turning pages.

I'm perfectly happy with the way CM10 is running, so I'm looking for a reason to "upgrade".
PDFs were slower for me on the stock ROM, by the way. The HD+ isn't the speediest device around to begin with.
It should get faster on CM11 BTW, you may have noticed already. 10.1 didn't have TRIM support at all, because some Nook HD+'s had a memory controller bug that could brick the device if TRIM was used. 10.2 added in TRIM support, based on a fix that Google did for the Nexus 7s that had the same memory controller, but it wasn't turned on by default. CM11 actually has TRIM enabled, and it helps tremendously! My 16gb Nook HD+ went from so slow I wanted to throw it across the room at times to nice and snappy like it was when I first rooted it.

There's an app called eMMC Check that will tell you if your Nook HD+ has the buggy memory controller, but I don't think it matters any more. Apparently there have been no reports of bricked tablets after the TRIM fix. There's also an app called Lagfix (fstrim) Free that will do a forced TRIM of all the storage. I used it after I installed CM11 to get things going faster sooner. (I did run the eMMC Check first to be safe, turns out mine doesn't have the buggy controller.)
