Great start, Rohit. Only a few suggestions....

- current dayjob wants "active voice" for things like this. Net impact is
stuff like "that allows" now reads off to me. Suggest "allowing" for this
example and looking out for other cases.

- since this is a maintenance release, it would be good to explicit about
that ( maintenance release)

- since this is a maintenance release on an lts, it's probably a good idea
to explicitly state when eom is slated to happen. Idea being to save
someone from hunting for it.

- "improvements" is both vague and subjective. Suggest creating a page
detailing any configuration or behavioral changes which occur from stock
4.9 and link to it. The idea isn't to replace the readme, but to
consolidate stuff you might need when debugging an upgrade
