Hey, I'm a hardcore UBUNTU fan and I was just wondering what changes have been made to the Kubuntu version since v. 9.04.

Well, it went from KDE 4.2 to KDE 4.6
That's a big change..
Check the KDE site for changelogs..

Here is a Kubuntu News link to help you find some information.
They are usually pretty good at pointing out what is new for each Kubuntu release, and also provide information about KDE upgrades.

KDE has come a long way since then... but most of the changes are in the areas of improving stability and performance. Some of the default apps have changed in Kubuntu like Dolphin, Rekonq, and Dragon Player, etc. The latest Kubuntu uses PulseAudio too. Kubuntu has a Firefox installer in the start menu now. Netbook and Desktop editions are both on the same cd now.

Hope this helps.

Wow, the changes are really massive!

The main differences would be System-Settings has a new layout, plasma is more refined in the add widgets etc, more desktop effects, blur like glass in windows 7 and under the hood performance improvements and hardware detection.
