CBA adds JAL, United and other airline transfer partners?

iflyflat has published a blog post today saying you can now redeem your Commbank Awards Points to fly with nine new airline partners:
  • Air Asia - Big points
  • Air France / KLM - Flying Blue
  • Eva Air - Infinity MileageLands
  • China Eastern - Eastern Miles
  • Etihad - Guest
  • Malaysia Airlines - Enrich
  • United Airlines - MileagePlus
  • Japan Airlines - MileageBank
  • Lufthansa - Miles & More
  • Plus - IHG Rewards, the loyalty program of InterContinental Hotels Group, is also available as the bank's first hotel transfer partner.
I can't find this info on CBA's website - it just lists Velocity and Qantas.

Has anyone received notification from CBA? Perhaps this info is embargoed and iflyflat has jumped the gun on the announcement.

Japan Airlines, United Airways and 7 more airlines are now accessible with CBA Awards Points.
If you go to "Awards Site" under "looking for something else?"
then select "Redeem Travel", select "Frequent Flyer Programs"
you will be presented with options of transferring points to those programs available:
