Dunno yet. I’ll expand on this if I do. For the moment, CRU themselves are not excited.
Update: it looks very much like this is nothing new, just those mails deemed to dull to release last time. So, as Deltoid points out, and claims to being doing this for “information transparency” is a clear lie. Pic ripped off from Bart who presumably ripped it off someone else…
More update: I forgot that the most exciting thing is to look for my name – doh. And I find:

Ah, you mean A9(d) (I thought you meant A9(a) for a bit). Yes, that looks pretty similar to IPCC 1990. Though not identical - the scaling is different, but the timing is similar.
Makes it all worth while. That is all about the semi-mythical IPCC ’90 fig 7.1c.
Update: still not very exciting; may even have passed away. That sure sign o’ the times, wikipedia, is seeing minimal activity (Climatic Research Unit email controversy#Further release, 2011). We do have William M. Conway, though.
