    Indeed, it was silly of me.
    And a new thread is going to be noticed more then a single post in an already cluttered thread.

    You can request a mod to change the thread title.

    I agree with you on the new thread per update idea, it takes too long for people to notice the old "catch all" threads. New thread for new news.

    I guess that's why it explains the date being day/month/year instead of month/day/year

    Changed the title.

    Personally I'm not going to mind a new thread per update since updates don't even come weekly (so the forum isn't exactly cluttered), the old one's not a sticky and doesn't have the info in it anyways, and like Snailface said people are going to be looking for topics with the specific version, etc.
