This one is a little late, sorry.
The Computing Technology Industry Association (CompTIA) announced that it will be updating its entry-level, vendor-neutral Linux+ credential, releasing the new exam by "late 2004."
CompTIA characterises the upcoming exam as a "major" upgrade. Detailed objectives for the new exam can be found here.
CompTIA Linux+ Certification Program Manager Yvonne Keith told CertCities.com that changes were based on feedback from subject matter experts, who recommended adding significant security material as well as a documentation section, and de-emphasizing hardware. "We also tried to focus the hardware better...toward Linux," she commented.
