Can any body give me some advice on the use of "tags" as opposed to "categories"? For example, What will tagging something "hobby" do or not do that categorizing the same item "hobby" won't do or will do?

Good question. I've been thinking about this myself.
In many ways, tags are just more generalised versions of categories; and of space contexts; and of time contexts.
An item can have at most one category, one space context, and one time context; but it can have many tags.
Tags give an extra dimension that you can use to search across things.

Are tags new in 0.9? I don't find them in 0.8.
Space context, time context, tags, etc. It all seems kind of redundant. Being able to define multiple tags to a task should be enough, shouldn't it? This complex XXX context/tags stuff seems quite confusing.
Or are there use scenarious which might make their usage more clear?

Tags would probably make it easier for searching (or listing) by tag name. Also, tags are more flexible than temporal or spatial contexts. What I would like to see, though, is nested Contexts that tag with their parent contexts. This way it is easy for me to list items that can be done in the "office" as including things that can be done on the phone, and on the computer. Currently selecting spatial and temporal contexts to list these things is counter intuitive.
