Right you are.  Perhaps we can change:

The third extended filesystem (ext3) is a widely used enhancement to 
ext2, which adds journalling capabilities and is compatible with the 
E2fsprogs utilities.

To read:

The third (ext3, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ext3) and fourth (ext4, 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ext4) filesystem types are widely used 
enhancements to ext2, which add several new capabilities and are 
compatible with the E2fsprogs utilities.
