Well what is old is now new again. GRUB2 requires running an installer after any change, such as installing a newly built kernel. Forget that step and kaboom! Well you get the old config with no mention of the newly installed kernel if you weren't so unwise as to get rid of the current running kernel before rebooting but we still went backward with GRUB2.
