The confusion is understandable.  The "new" objectives need to be
available and published well in advance so that courseware providers and
training partners can prepare material for exam preparation purposes in
advance of actual publication of the exams.

So..the new objectives are available now on our exam development wiki
and will be shortly on our website.  As per an earlier message we are
communicating these changes out to various stakeholders now--and have
been since the summer. Look for formal "official" communications to come
out on this list shortly.

In the interim it is as Matt states: if you are planning to write an
exam prior to April 1, 2009 than you should study and prepare via the
objectives available at our website today.
