Release notes 

1.9 (2013-10-14)
 * Fix file and directory permissions. A random temporary directory inside
   /tmp (by default, see `[system]tempdir` in client.ini) is securely created
   for actual ephemeral files. The log file will have 0600 permission.
   (LP: #1235975)
 * Download files directly to the cache partition or data partition.
   (LP: #1233521)
 * Proactively remove files from the cache and data partitions before starting
   to download anything (except `log` and `last_log` in the cache partition).
   This avoid various problems that can occur if the reboot fails (LP:
   #1238102) and improves the ability to recover from partial downloads
   without rebooting (LP: #1233521).
 * Keep the D-Bus process alive as long as progress is being made (as tracked
   by any calls, internally or externally to D-Bus methods or signals).
   (LP: #1238290)
 * Pause/resume downloads. (LP: #1237360)
 * Remove all references to the `[system]threads` variable since it is no
   longer used, after the integration of the download manager.
 * Through the use of the psutil library, re-enable some previously skipped
   tests. (LP: #1206588)
