Bzr 2.0 is out.  I personally find the speed improvements very  
impressive.  The new repository format is much smaller, and intended  
to be stable, and the project has a adopted a six-month maintenance  
release approach.

It has a new website.  http://bazaar-vcs.org/en/

It has a new front-end for Gnome/KDE/Mac OS X/Win.  The screenshots  
look impressive to me, which is all I can vouch for.  

Cross-platform end of line conversion is implemented, which was one of  
the concerns raised earlier.  

I don't remember if anyone brought up the lack of a parallel to svn  
externals.  That functionality (called nested trees for bzr) is not  
implemented yet.  It is important to Launchpad's usage of the tool,  
though, so it is in the six-month pipeline, as I understand it.

I'm happy to try to field any questions if anyone has any.
