See the boxed note on the "Solr is Now a Standalone Server" piece of the

For right now, you can still find the solr.war file in the download,
under server/webapps.  This will eventually change, hopefully in a later
5.x release.  Nobody has publicly started work on the transition to a
true standalone application, so you have a little bit of time before you
have to change your deployment.

My general advice:  Go ahead and keep doing it the way you're doing it,
but be aware that you will be forced to change in the future.  If you
can modify your deployment so it uses the new bin\solr script, you will
probably be completely ready for whatever comes in the future.
