I assume you mean 2.9.0.   Unfortunately that's the latest release
the intel maintainers have produced, so that's what we have to go
with.   They can always produce a 2.9.1 when they are ready and
recommend their users and distros use it instead - since the 7.5
release is distributed as individual modules, it's trivial for
builders to replace 2.9.0 with 2.9.1 when it's out.
