Grep's been unmaintained for ages, I'm happy to see that once again

Installing the brand new 2.6.2 version still often refers to older dates or

Please update these numbers so that one having the new grep installed can be
totally confident that she's using a new release, and reading the
documentation belonging to the new version.
