What's with the book title?

So if I understand the blurb on Amazon correctly, this book ("Murach's C++ 2008") teaches C++/CLI under Visual Studio 2008.

Then why this book title? There is no such thing as "C++ 2008". The official C++0x standard has been delayed far beyond that. In addition, C++/CLI is not C++, and if a book is about C++/CLI, this should be pointed out explicitly. Yes, in the book title.

I am not at all convinced that it is C++/CLI but a new language which runs as a part of .NET. It is very similar to C++, however.

I have seen students coding in C++ on .NET and now I am totally confused what product it is. Hopefully the author clarifies this!
