Hi all,

the last update in the 0.9.x series has been released only a few weeks ago, 
and now it's already time for another one.  Go grab the tarball directly at 
[1], or check our downloads page [2]. We also have a static core again!

Besides various bugfixes (among those, Phonon notifications play sound 
again!), and a bunch of new and improved translations, the main reason for 
this one is, unfortunately, another vulnerability: with a carefully 
manipulated client, you can retrieve the backlog of other users on the 
quasselcore you're using. Proper authentication is still needed, so this will 
only affect people who allow untrusted and malicious users on their shared 
core. Still, an upgrade is highly recommended.

If you happen to be a distro packager, please be advised to backport (i.e. 
simply apply) [3] and, if you haven't done so yet since the release of 0.9.1, 
[4] to your packages, if you can't bump them to 0.9.2 for release process 

Well, here's hoping that next time we won't have that sense of urgency again 

Have a nice day, and happy updating,
~ Sput
