KDE 4.9 receives its last stabilisation update
The KDE developers have released the last monthly stabilisation update for the KDE 4.9 release series. KDE 4.9.4 includes 71 bug fixes and translation improvements. Some of the bugs fixed caused KDE applications to crash.

A detailed list of all changes is available from the KDE bugtracker. As usual with these monthly stabilisation updates, the developers recommend that all users install the update as soon as possible. They promise "a safe and pleasant update for everyone."
