Sigh. It wouldn't be the first time someone has produced a binary
package using a release candidate (or even alpha or beta) version of the
code instead of waiting for a final release, and doubtless it won't be the
last either, but I think I can speak for the entire BIND 9 development team
when I say: "that really isn't a good idea; please don't do that anymore."
If you're in a position to download and build source, the latest release
of 9.8.x is at https://www.isc.org/software/bind/983-p1 and new releases
are announced on this mailing list when they occur.
