DNA-1350 compressor control question

I was responding to a question on TalkBass about amps and was about to let the fellow know about the built-in compressor on the 1350. The main picture on the web site shows threshold, ratio, attack, release, as well as a hard-knee/soft-knee button and a bypass button, which is just about as complete a compressor as you can get.

HOWEVER, I've seen some pictures of the 1350 with the DI level and Side-chain controls (previously located on the back of the amp) in place of the threshold and ratio knobs and the threshold and ratio knobs where the attack and release knobs used to be. Also appears the pre/post DI selection is where the soft-knee/hard-knee button used to be and the effects bypass button has also made it into this previous "compressor" area.

So I downloaded the manual and it doesn't have the other two compressor controls on it. It appears to have info on the version without the complete compressor controls. The manual is ©2014. So, is that how it comes now?

If so, shouldn't we change the main picture on the "http://dnaamps.com/amps/" page. The big picture shows the version with the complete compressor controls on it. Looks like there is a smaller picture of the newer(?) set up, but you can't read the controls on it.

I mentioned it a few times already, but they keep the picture of the prototype up.
There is only one amp with these knobs and that compressor design.

LOL...Can't really afford to buy that right now though, and the first amp that I bought from David is still going strong!
