I get that impression too, but I think it makes sense, because there is
always a risk that a plugin will break with a new WP version.
They don't _always_ break, but sometimes do. Until somebody checks that
it actually works, it is well worth warning the user that it may not
I'm not sure if this is the current behaviour, but it only makes sense
to warn if a major version number has changed, e.g. 2.6 → 2.7, but not
2.6.2 → 2.6.3, because they are just bugfix releases.
