You're right. It would make sense to view this paper keeping that time context in mind. In all honesty though, I haven't found any other modern literature which describes all these softwares. Despite the addition of new features, the basic core of the software doesn't change a lot. At least, in the cases I know.
If someone has a later version or a paper of similar nature, I would love to have a look. This thread is meant to be one where such comparative software studies can be shared. My interest is in radiation-diffraction and strip-theory based hydrodynamic codes, but I can imagine there would be some CFD guys on this forum too!
