The second maintenance release of the 4.9 series of NAV is now out!
The source code is available for download at GitHub .
New packages for Debian 8/9 (Jessie/Stretch) are available in our APT repository  as usual.
The Debian packages for NAV 4.9 have been rebuilt using dh-virtualenv, which means that most of the Python dependencies are now embedded into the packages themselves. If you have previously added a priority apt pin for packages from apt.uninett.no, you may now remove it, as there are no longer any other packages needed from that repository to run NAV.
Please also be extra aware of config file changes. Look out for `*.dpkg-dist` files in /etc/nav and make sure to update your running config.
The virtual appliance currently being updated at the time of this writing, and will be uploaded soon.

* #1837 (Save config to non volatile memory in portadmin for dell switches) * #1853 (The navuser command should have an option to verify a user's passord)
