There was a rash of trouble due to sectarian clashes, but that has cooled down now. It was never really in high-traffic tourist areas anyway, just on the fringes.... easy to avoid that kind of trouble, just stay away fro demonstrations and public gatherings.
A work colleague has just returned from Myanmar and was there at the height of the latest incidents, and she says it was very calm and peaceful where she was. She's also raving about what a great destination it is, so go and enjoy.
