Read the article.

Microsoft has previously said it is focusing on developers (read: web standards) with version 8, which is expected to be released in the first half of 2008 for both Windows XP and Windows Vista

I don't know where the writer got that information from but it was not from the invitation nor from the IE devs' blog.
In the invitation it is stated that the beta 1 will be available in the first half of 2008. If MS actually gets the final version in 2008(both for XP and Vista) it might not be as revolutionary as they are selling.
Maybe in the end it turns out to be more like IE7+standards-mode.
