I got the following 2 emails from my CA:
Important RapidSSL Updates
Dec 07, 2010 02:07 pm
To fall in line with new CAB forum guidelines there are a few important
updates to RapidSSL certificates (including wildcard).
The RapidSSL certificate will be issued using an intermediate CA from 9
December 2010. This intermediate certificate must be installed with your
certificate to ensure the best browser compatibility.
Block CSR requests under 2048bits
For certificates that extend beyond 2 years you will not be able to use
a CSR request using less than 2048bit. This is to ensure that all
certificates are at least 2048bit by 2012.

You are receiving this e-mail because your SSL certificate(s) listed
below will be affected by a change the Mozilla Foundation is making on
June 30, 2011. The change will affect how your RapidSSL® certificates
perform in Firefox browsers.
Mozilla will disable their support of the MD5* signature algorithm
beginning on June 30, 2011. On and after that date, SSL certificates
signed with an MD5 algorithm will display errors and not function
properly in updated Firefox browsers. The Mozilla notice regarding this
change can be found at: https://wiki.mozilla.org/CA:MD5and1024.
Although RapidSSL has not signed certificates using the MD5 algorithm
since December 2008, the algorithm was used for some certificates with
multi-year validity periods prior to that date.
