UT Drupal Kit 3.9.0/3.9.1 Release

NOTE: Due to a CSS regression introduced in the 3.9.0 release, the 3.9.1 bugfix release was created prior to the 3.9.0 release announcement.

There is also a major version change to the “Facets” module which may require attention by developers of customized sites.
