Some stuff I've seen lately:
Here's a law professor who seems to love habeas corpus as much as I do. She gives a nice list of reasons of why habeas corpus remains an interesting subject for law students.
More analysis of the Troy Davis case and/or the AEDPA can be found here, here, here, here, and here. I really enjoyed reading the first of those here's. It's more about the death penalty than either the AEDPA or habeas, but still relevant.
On a similar note, I liked this line from an Esquire piece about Obama and civil liberties. The line is in a discussion of which presidents did the most to infringe upon civil liberties: "Still clinging to third place is Bill Clinton, whose response to the Oklahoma City bombing was the Effective Anti-Terrorism and Death Penalty Act, a big bag of constitutional grief passed in 1996 that, among is other charms, took the biggest whack at habeas corpus since Abraham Lincoln suspended the writ entirely during the Civil War."
A federal judge in Pennsylvania has granted a habeas petitioner's request for bail after the judge granted habeas relief last month. Petitioner had been convicted of a 1977 double murder. However, the judge concluded that prosecutorial misconduct had "'cast[ ] a pall of doubt over every single piece of evidence presented by the prosecution in support of its case.'"
