The reason it doesn't exist is because it was fixed after 1.8.4 was 
created, and and are based on 1.8.4, with only select 
changes made.

Anything resolved after 1.8.4 then becomes available in the following 
RC1 where it is only then pulled from the 1.8 branch directly.

If we just pulled everything in from the 1.8 branch for then 
we'd have many changes that were not directly resolving the issue at 
hand that was triggering the 1.8.4.x release. I think that makes sense 
when you think about it that way.

Basically the only time all changes from the 1.8 branch are pulled into 
a release is at 1.8.x-rc1. Anything after that is a cherry picked issue 
that is justifying an additional release candidate or sub-point release.

Hope that helps,

Leif Madsen
