powershell gui help file not up to date?

in Windows PowerShell v.2, I can type:
get-help about_join -full

however, in the gui version .chm help file, i can't find this file.

... is this because the gui help file is not updated to v.2?

i'm using

PS C:\Users\xah\web\powershell> $psversiontable

Name Value
---- -----
CLRVersion 2.0.50727.4016
BuildVersion 6.1.6949.0
PSVersion 2.0
PSCompatibleVersions {1.0, 2.0}

not sure how to find out the version number of the GUI help if there's one... but it's downloaded from MS site about 2 or 3 weeks ago. The file mod date is 2007 Nov, so it's before PowerShell 2.0 CTP3. umm.... so probably the help file is PowerShell v1 only.

Ah, on the download page, it says:
Windows PowerShell 1.0 Graphical Help File. That explains. Thanks.
