Do you mean the year and the comma? I think the year should get
updated too, but I think it's acceptable form to not include a comma
before the conjunction in a list. It's one of those things where the
proper form was to always use the comma, but so many people
stopped using it that it became an accepted form. Even so, a lot of
style guides on the web say you should use it anyway, and I agree.
