No just packages from what I heard

This will not take into effect right away, I believe it will happen in 6 months

Other way around as I read it. Normal mail will only go to PO Boxes, but packages will be delivered. It'll be interesting to see if they consider smaller padded envelopes and the like to be 'packages'.

One of the questions - can you schedule a Saturday package pickup?

Well when you purchase postage for a package online, it's classified as "First Class Package" or "Priority Mail Package", so I assume those will be delivered on Sat. However, if you put stamps on a bubble mailer - not sure about that.

It is kind of sad, the end of an era.
What will happen to mail carriers?
Do they keep their salaries and pension?
