No, it's an indicator that:
1) we are working on a new farm (Raffaello should tell you more about
this - Raff can you post a status here please?)
2) Raff is very busy on other things and haven't had time to upgrade
the "old" farm yet but this is planned.
Now, upgrading a farm is always more complex than upgrading a single
wiki instance as if you introduce an error you introduce it to 10K
wikis... so you need to be more carful... :)

I'm not sure I understand your question or maybe you're not read the
releases notes? We do have instructions there on how to upgrade. If
these are not enough, I'd really like to know what's missing so that
I can improve them.
