I guess the headline must have changed since he posted it! It's there as one of the stories on that site's main page (http://www.activewin.com/awin/default.asp).

The DirectX 9.0 SDK Update (Summer 2003) contains updated versions of the D3DX library. The new features contained are support for shader model 2.0 with capability bits on, and new animation system updates. The support for shader model 2 allows the High-Level Shader Language (HLSL) to enable flow control via predication to reduce the amount of instructions needed to run advanced shaders. For information on what is supported in shader model 2.0, refer to the updated DirectX 9.0 SDK reference documentation. The animation system adds functionality for looping, callback functions, event querying, and more advanced animation cloning functionality. Furthermore there are new graphic samples, many updates to the DirectX extensions for Visual Studio .Net 2003, and extended support for DirectX Texture Tool and the DirectX 9.0b Developer runtime.
