I thought that FIPS 151-1 has been available for some time.  I have
seen people quote it, however, I have not seen a copy myself.  Is the
above quote the latest info?

P.S.  The SVID info *is* out of date.  SVID issue 3 is now available.
      The select codes are no longer in the front of the book.
