Has drafting improved in 2009

When did drafting get so worthless in SW.

I ran version 1999, 2001 and 2004 and had very few complaints. Since loading 2008, drafting has been a major pain.

Main issues:

1. Select "vertical dimnsion" and SW still puts in whatever it wants to.
2. Turn hidden line selection off, and SW still grabs hidden lines and sketches
3. Dimensioning a weldment, doesn't recongnize many of the sillouette lines.

Are things better in 2009. I'm really under the gun and need to know if I should take the time to update.

Note: I switch between Unigraphics, SolidWorks, Inventor and SolidEdge depending on who my current client is. SW used to be a no-brainer to move back in to. With 2008, it's as bad as the others.
