You are comparing different things. All of the 'texlive/2009' entries
are file locations. As you are using TeX Live 2009, all of the files
live inside that folder. On the other hand, the lines
Document Class: article 2007/10/19 v1.4h Standard LaTeX document class
[Loading MPS to PDF converter (version 2006.09.02).]
are version numbers/dates. So the standard article class has not changed
since 2007, but the file location is
and for TeX Live 2010 will be
There is nothing to worry about.
