Is this still the latest way to make glass?

I think so, if you want high-end glass with refraction. There is also a "simpler" glass without refraction in the material library called "clean glass", which is still very complex IMO, and I also didn't like the DIRT/WORN effect on that glass, so I made my own simplified glass which has much less nodes and is actually clean, LOL. I used this tutorial as a basis.

The material library is in /blender/material_library. There are subfolders like "glass" and every material has its own .blend file with object(s) to showcase the material.
And yeah i went for this in the end…Yeah, that's almost exactly my setup as well. Looks good on your models. Sober and realistic. I found the B4W glass with the "matcap" highlights too excessive, but their setups are very good for dirty and scratched glass and also for putting scratches and water stains on chrome:
