Plasma NM 0.9.0

Well, I would like to have fixed bug "networkmanagement's kded module crashes when opening kwallet" before this release but I have not been able to reproduce it, so I have not figure out how to fix it. I am doing this release basically to push the changes to make Plasma NM resilient to problems when contacting kded, which is the cause of "desktop freezes" bug.

Since I do not have more release candidate numbers left after rc4 I had to use 0.9.0, so here it goes:

@johu, read the first paragraph in the release announcement.

Why wasn't is possible to call it "rc5", if it's an RC and not a stable release?

There is no rc5 in KDE numbering scheme. rc4 = x.y.99 and we do not use more than two digits. Anyway, that's just a version number, there will be a :-)

Sometimes ago I followed your instructions to install Version 0.9.0_rc3 (nm09 20111209).

How can I update my build to obtain your latest release?

If this hints are already written, can you suggest where I can find them?

Thank you for your great work.

@gianted, if you cloned the repository using git when you compiled Plasma NM for the first time then now you just need to run "git pull; make; make install" inside the networkmangement directory.

If you did not use git to clone (download) the source code then I suggest that you use git. As you can see above it is pretty easy to get the new changes through git and recompile Plasma NM.

The instructions to clone the repository using git in here if you have not done it yet.
