The state of the 0.9.4b release

Alec Leamas
Dear list,

The 0.9.4b release has been out since two weeks, and there is feedback.
Some of this feedback is new bugs. We have currently 9 fixes in the
release branch after the 0.9.4b  tag. You can see the oneliners below.

For the packaged stuff I have made new releases of the Fedora packages
containing these fixes. 0.9.4b-2 is readily available from the COPR repo
[1] and is also in updates-testing[2], [3]. Eventually, the update will
hit the Fedora repos. I have also updated the Debian package to
0.9.4b-2, available in [4].

There might very well be a 0.9.4c release, but we need to give the
current release some more time first. In the meantime, be aware of the
existing patches available.
