Hi Tim,

Thanks for reviewing; I've few comments:

- I don't understand what your first suggestion.

- I'll add that it's a maintenance release on the LTS branch/release.

- This is only an announcement, the information on what got changes, added/removed/fixed need
to go into release notes. We can have a link to release notes and upgrade notes in the announcements

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

- 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
