I have just updated my 10 active Rpi's to kernel 3.9.10 (thanks cbxbiker) http://www.xilka.com/kernel/UPDATE-KERNEL.sh, and updated from raspbian wheezy to jessie. Kernel updating doesn't take too much tome but changing from wheezy to jessie does require significant time as the update is massive. I also added the recommended modules which is significant in itself. I don't know what has been added but I think it is quite a lot. Apart from my relatively slow download speed 5Mb/sec - I must be in the styxz despite being a mere 35 miles from the centre of London - the processing time for the updates, for which operator attention is required periodically for config files, is quite lengthy. Don't expect to set up and go 5 minutes later!

Another thing is that two interfaces have been added which required reconfiguration of my mrtg server (mrtg.cfg) and associated html file.

Just for the record I shew info from the oldest Pi i have which is an early 256Mbyte model:-

Having just performed the usual 'aptitude update' and 'aptitude full-upgrade' on all my (13) Pi's, I found that Apache2 (2.4.7) was reconfigured (without my permission) so in effect, the web pages were dead. This also affected wget which I use on remote machines to grab some data updates.

I couldn't find much about the problem but it seems that '/etc/apache2/sites-available/000-default.conf' was rewritten with a new default configuration. This is symbolically linked to '/etc/apache2/sites-enabled/000-default.conf' Fortunately I had an old version on a Sheevaplug and I used that configuration to edit the Pi's file. After a 'service apache2 restart' all was well and normal service was resumed. However I have unecessarily lost 24 hours of data and in a near future scenario, could have affected my home environment.

I note the same problem on one of my Sheevaplugs but the other two are fine. Not sure about Guruplugs, Tonidoplugs and Cubox's yet.

I can now confirm that my Sheevaplugs, Cubox's, Guruplugs and Tonidoplugs were similarly afflicted by the unwarned Apache configuration changes.
