When does SCJD 1.4 go live?

Anybody know? I checked the SunEd site today and there's no mention that such a thing even exists.
If I was almost done with the SCJD assignment, I'd guess it would go live either the day after I ulpoaded my assignment or theday after I got my scores back (hopefully having passed).
However, since I haven't yet signed up, I'm guessing it would be the day after I do shell out my $250 and download the current assignment.
I'd like to get started soon, but I'm not happy about the idea of working hard and getting newly certified at something that just got replaced.
I know Sun's been in contact with the Ranch about the 1.4 version in the past and am hoping someone here
a) knows something about when 1.4 will go live, and
b) is allowed to talk about it.
Thanks all!

Well they haven't given us any kind of date, but the beta test is over and the results given out to those who took it.
I think either assignment, the current one or the one they will replace it with is much of a difference. I believe that both certificates are worthwhile. You wont' hurt yourself by signing up now, and you can still use Java 1.4 production version on the current assignment.
Good Luck and whichever you decide will be fine.

Mark,
Having read posts about the beta and checked out Max's book I know that they both exams cover similar topics (with less, or no, code supplied in the 1.4 version) and that I can use 1.4 on the current version.
I was just hoping for a Good Reason to either start now or put it off for a week or two.
Ah well... thanks anyway.

Well I don't think that they will release 1.4 in a week or two, so the sooner you start, the sooner you will be certified.
