I am not sure how you got the new releases before, but in most cases
people do not build and install texinfo from source by themselves, and
those who do also install texinfo.tex manually.  In most cases, texinfo
is packaged as part of a packaging system, which depends on the platform
and most users get new versions like that.  In general, users willing to
test/use prereleases may install from source, but it probably amounts to
a small number of people.
