Update to 1.4, says dependencies are updated?

I just updated to 1.4 (from 1.3). Strange things is (for me), that right after updating I get this response:

Newer versions of the following indirect dependencies are available:

  • autoupdate 1.2.11 (1.3.11 is available)
  • ddp-client 1.2.9 (1.3.0 is available)
  • ddp-server 1.2.10 (1.3.9 is available)
  • http 1.1.8 (1.2.8 is available)
    To update one or more of these packages, pass their names to meteor update.

I don’t get it, these are core packages if I can see correctly? Shouldn’t they be up to date already after an upgrade?

Not anymore. 1.4 unpins the core packages from the meteor version, so you have to run:

meteor update autoupdate
meteor update ddp-client
meteor update ddp-server
meteor update http

It means that e.g. blaze and other packages can follow another release cycle than meteor, which will make the transision to npm among other things a lot easier.

Aha! Cool, tnx.
