That depends on whether you want 4.9-STABLE (stable-supfile), which is
the latest incarnation of the 4-STABLE branch, or whether you want
4.9-RELEASE-pX (standard-supfile) which is the 4.9-RELEASE system plus
security patches only.

4-STABLE receives new functionality, upgrades to software and so
forth.  4.9-RELEASE doesn't.  4-STABLE is what I'd recommend to a home
or hobby user, or for someone's workaday desktop machine.  4.9-RELEASE
is what I'd recommend for a critical server that absolutely has to
keep running 24x7.
