Correct, the features in question were added later.

A good idea.  It may not be necessary to regenerate the code for every
platform.  Working on projects in the past, it was the norm to generate
and check-in the generated code on the primary UNIX platform, and only
compile on the various UNIXies/Linux.  Much of the upgraded
functionality is in the code generator, althought threading depends upon
the appropriate threading libraries availability on each platform.
