Hi Prem,
The new version of the exam is still a BETA exam. In my opinion, if your planning to take the exam in a few weeks from now, you should go ahead with SCJP 1.4
If you are planning to take the exam after 2-3 months , then you might wait for the newer version.
If you become SCJP 1.4 certified, you won't cease to be a SCJP after the new exam gets launched. Its just that you won't be certified in the latest version of the technology. Ofcourse, you can later take the upgrade exam if you wish.

Yes, as the pre-requisit for other Java exams (except SCEA) specifies that, any versions of SCJP is ok, and thus, you dont need to take any upgrade before you getting in other Java exams.
