Currently we test this kernel in the test lab, working great so far. Also, this kernel will be used in the first beta of 2.x. This also helps to eliminate kernel related migration issues.

It is interesting to learn that there will be a 1.9 release. I asked in 
the past for a 1.9 release based on squeeze, that would bring ext4 
support and compatibility with Dell OMSA, and ease the migration from 
1.x to 2.0. I was answered that there will be no other 1.x release.

Apart from a new 2.6.32 kernel, based on RHEL6, are there other features 
that will be added to this 1.9 release ?

There is no problem for me to go for a 2.6.32 kernel, as far as the 
latest KVM features are supported in this kernel, and there is no 
conflict with OpenVZ (there were bugs in the past, related to OpenVZ
