Twenty Eleven support for WP 3.1.3?

I tried to install new Twenty Eleven theme in WP 3.1.3 and received following error:

Fatal error: Fatal error: Call to undefined function is_multi_author() in .../themes/twentyeleven/functions.php on line 580

Twenty Eleven will require WP 3.2? Many users can test this new theme from official repository with older WP version, I guess... And I did not find any notice in readme or somewhere about 3.2 requirements.

At present the only location you can get TwentyEleven from is from the Core WordPress repository, Twenty Eleven is not in the Themes Directory yet either.

As It's the default theme for WordPress 3.2+, I do not see any reasonable explanation for it to support older versions of WordPress.. However, in this case, it's trivial to do so (an extra function_exists check), but i'm not sure it's warranted. We should be encouraging people to upgrade to 3.2, not use new themes on their existing site. As for those wanting to test Twenty Eleven, It'd be best for them to test 3.2 while they're at it.

When TwentyEleven is released in a few weeks with WordPress 3.2, Any readme description should mention 3.2+ compatibility I imagine..
