Ind. Courts - Whither the new probation standards?

A long-time ILB attorney/reader from a rural county writes today:

I just printed the Probation Standards from the Indiana Judicial Center page. It is still the old standards from 2001. Is this not the effective date of the new standards?? Embarrassing lack of publication??
I asked where specifically he had looked and learned that from this Indiana Judicial Center page, he had clicked "Probation Standards" in the right column. The result: the March 9, 2001 standards.

So I looked and found this article from Court Times, dated June 26, 2014, titled "Indiana Probation Standards revised effective July 1st." The article states:

The Revised Standards are located on the Indiana Judicial Center’s website.

I followed the link to a page with a lot of documents, including one titled "Indiana Probation Standards," with this link. But it leads to the same 2001 standards!
