New version of pcsc-lite: 1.9.4

I just released a new version of pcsc-lite 1.9.4.
pcsc-lite is a Free Software implementation of the PC/SC (or WinSCard) API for Unix systems.

This version fixes a memory leak when libusb is used for the hotplug mechanism. GNU/Linux systems should use libudev instead of libusb for hotplug so they should not be concerned. FreeBSD systems and other non-Linux systems had the problem.

The memory leak problem was also reported on the pfSense project at
