While testing Mathematica 8 on some heritage code, I found a problem
which a colleague traced to a behavioral change in Times.
Specifically, the documentation for Times states that "0 x evaluates
to 0, but 0.0 x is left unchanged." This appears to be true in
Mathematica 7 but not in Mathematica 8 (at least not under Mac OS X
I have informed Wolfram about this change (bug?).
