It wasn't when I wrote the post. Took an hour or so longer.

In case you didn't see it yet, bottom of the last blog post: https://www.factorio.com/blog/post/fff-349

I guess all the mod-breaking changes recently are to pave the way for 1.0. Good stuff. (I learned my lesson and now backup the entire game folder before updating. Hard-links (cp -al) work fine for this!)
