Yes, it was recently updated, but the chain/issuer is identical so I'm surprised you only see this now. The cert appears valid in Safari and /usr/bin/curl. My MacPorts-provided curl/openssl also seem to think it is valid, but I have not updated them in a while so perhaps I copied root certs or something to fix it back then.
