The answer is, no, don't be worried. It's not unusual for it to not
prompt you to upgrade to a new release. If you *want* to upgrade to the
new release, just follow the instructions on the wiki that have already
been posted. You do not have to download a CD or anything else. All that
the instructions do is force the updater to check for a new release and
offer the upgrade.
