In general, plugins will be upward compatible .. and many will work just 
fine in FM9. Give it a try and see how it goes.  :)

FM9 does introduce a twist that may cause hiccups for some plugins that 
work with structured applications .. the default location for the file is now in the "user" Application Data area 
(C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application 

We (Leximation) have tested most of our plugins with FM9 and they seem 
to work fine. We do plan to officially update all of them for FM9 
(eventually). DITA-FMx will be our first plugin to update for FM9, and 
hope to have a beta of DITA-FMx 1.1 for FM9 available within a month.
