CISSP Exam Changes Domains 7 and 8

I have just been looking at the Domain Refresh which is effective from the 1st of May 2021. For all domains 1 to 6, The left-hand column says “April 2018 to April 2021”. For domains 7 and 8 however the left-hand column says “prior to September 2020”. Does this mean that domains 7 and 8 have already changed and have different content from 2020, 2019 and 2018 at the moment even before 1st May 2021? This is confusing and I’m worried that I’m missing something during my revision for the exam that I plan to take in April before the exam changes. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you!

Please.

You guys are "majoring on the minors." There isn't even much of a signficant
difference between the 10 domain structure and the 8 domain structure. It's all just
a rearrangement of the same "body of knowledge" that hasn't changed very much
in the past couple of decades. And the fundmental principles, which are the most
important part, don't change much at all. Which groups you put it in doesn't
matter unless you are writing study materials yourself. (At the moment I am
reviewing my own seminar materials, and I still use the 10 domain structure, which
I find academically "cleaner." I also used the 10 domain structure for
"Cybersecurity Lessons from CoVDI-19," for the same reason.)
