No. No such thing as "4.9-CURRENT." RELENG_4 will update to 4-STABLE, which means it includes whatever updates have been made to -STABLE since the 4.9-RELEASE snapshot (4.x-RELEASE being a snapshot of 4-STABLE). > And RELENG_4_9 will be only updates to the 4.9 branch? 4.9 isn't a branch itself, it's a snapshot of the -STABLE branch. RELENG_4_9 contains only critical updates from the 4.9-RELEASE snapshot, primarily if not exclusively security updates.
