Since the latest version of the preference pane came out after the  
latest gwTeX distribution was created it is no wonder that you don't  
have the latest texdist. There has been more than one update over  
time and you have the previous version. It's no big deal!

Go to the Laurens' texdist web page, <http://www.u-bourgogne.fr/monge/ 
j.laurens/TeXDist.html>, download the latest software and install  
them! When you unpack the files there may be one file with no  
extension which can be disposed of. The .prefpane file should be put  
in /Library/PreferencePanes/ (replacing the one that is already  
there) and the Tex Distribution Helper.app file goes into / 

Good Luck,
