      Observed a few issues after uploading the 0.9.0 docs to the Apache site (http://kafka.apache.org/090/documentation.html).

      1. There are a few places still mentioning 0.8.2.

      docs/api.html:We are in the process of rewritting the JVM clients for Kafka. As of 0.8.2 Kafka includes a newly rewritten Java producer. The next release will include an equivalent Java consumer. These new clients are meant to supplant the existing Scala clients, but for compatability they will co-exist for some time. These clients are available in a seperate jar with minimal dependencies, while the old Scala clients remain packaged with the server.

      docs/api.html:As of the 0.8.2 release we encourage all new development to use the new Java producer. This client is production tested and generally both faster and more fully featured than the previous Scala client. You can use this client by adding a dependency on the client jar using the following example maven co-ordinates (you can change the version numbers with new releases):

      docs/api.html: <version></version>

      docs/ops.html:The partition reassignment tool does not have the ability to automatically generate a reassignment plan for decommissioning brokers yet. As such, the admin has to come up with a reassignment plan to move the replica for all partitions hosted on the broker to be decommissioned, to the rest of the brokers. This can be relatively tedious as the reassignment needs to ensure that all the replicas are not moved from the decommissioned broker to only one other broker. To make this process effortless, we plan to add tooling support for decommissioning brokers in 0.8.2.

      docs/quickstart.html:<a href="https://www.apache.org/dyn/closer.cgi?path=/kafka/" title="Kafka downloads">Download</a> the release and un-tar it.
      docs/quickstart.html:> <b>tar -xzf kafka_2.10-</b>
      docs/quickstart.html:> <b>cd kafka_2.10-</b>

      2. The generated config tables (broker, producer and consumer) don't have the proper table frames.
