There was a last minute change to the code before the release of NTP
4.2.8 and as a result it didn't build on Windows. The beta's are mainly
to fix the problem with the Windows build. 4.2.8p1 should be released in
a week or so as soon as we can be sure that it is working properly.

To correct your above statement, beta's are prior to Release Candidates
