You're complaining about something that has been fixed.  The  
documentation was out of date, and that has been corrected.   If you  
really must complain about something (in the interests of a foolish  
'balance'), then pick something that hasn't been fixed.

Note that having the core information in the documentation and  
additional information like "how-to"s in a wiki means that keeping it  
up-to-date isn't tied to a release.
