I have very recently switched to 9.50-P1 on FC9.

I tried to use the option "statistics-channels", this is not accepted:
/etc/named.conf:24: unknown option 'statistics-channels'

I have this in named.conf:
acl internalhosts {;; ::1; };

options {
listen-on port 53 {; internalhosts; };
listen-on-v6 port 53 { ::1; };
directory "/var/named";
dump-file "/var/named/data/cache_dump.db";
statistics-file "/var/named/data/named_stats.txt";
memstatistics-file "/var/named/data/named_mem_stats.txt";
statistics-channels { inet * port 81 allow internalhosts; };
allow-query { any; };

This is not urgent, more like "nice to have"; but before I waste more
time I would like to ask if this has been taken out to make the -P1
happen in time?

Or is there some other (non)obvious reason this fails?

I could be worried that this might indicate a wrong version of the
running bind? It does load with this in the log:

Jul 25 21:16:10 sorte named[4799]: starting BIND 9.5.0-P1 -u named -t
Jul 25 21:16:10 sorte named[4799]: found 1 CPU, using 1 worker thread
Jul 25 21:16:10 sorte named[4799]: loading configuration from
