Because the update process didn't produce new files for over a month. You can
see this here: http://openstreetmapdata.com/data/land-polygons (look for "Last
update" in the Download section).

This happens when the changes to the coastlines are larger than some cut-off
which can mean that the coastlines are so badly broken that an update could
lead to some large scale problems. It can also mean that the update process
isn't doing its job. Mostly it means that I didn't have the time to look into
it recently.
