Touring - Changes to Nashbar Frame

I was just looking at the Nashbar touring frame. Seems to me they have changed the fork, it now has sloping shoulders, not lugs with a crown as on the Surly. It also only has one eyelet. I don't see any sign of the mid fork rack mounts but the picture isn't that great. Are these changes? Or maybe I just didn't remember it properly. The frame doesn't have rack braze-ons in evidence either. There are three water bottle mounts.

I can see a small hole mid-fork, just above the bend in the fork. There are 2 holes on each dropout for mounting racks and fenders. I can't tell if there is extra spoke holder on the chainstay though, I think the previous one had that.
for an extra $100 though I'd get the Utility Blue LHT... I wish I could justify building a new bike, but mine works just fine.
