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.
