Leopard Boot Camp "fast switching" disappears

Last week we pointed to an interesting addition to Apple's Leopard Boot Camp page: support for faster switching between Windows and OS X using safe sleep in OS X and hibernation in Windows. Well apparently something has changed. As Mac Rumors notes, Apple's page itself has been altered and references to the faster switching have disappeared. Originally it the page included the following:
Leopard brings a quicker way to switch between Mac OS X and Windows: Just choose the new Apple menu item "Restart in Windows." Your Mac goes into "safe sleep" so that when you return, you'll be right where you were. It's much faster than restarting the computer each time. Likewise, a "Restart in Mac OS X" menu item in the Boot Camp System Tray in Windows makes for a faster return to Mac OS X. With Windows hibernation enabled, you can pick up where you left off.
Mac Rumors has a Google cache of the page that shows the original text. Now Apple's page is simply missing that section. I hope this returns in the final release, because it looked like a great feature.
