Updated USSF PFA Requirements?

Asking more out of general curiosity, but did the PFA change from the 240+ APFT (minimum 70 in each event) to apply to SFAS?

The reason I ask is that the GoArmySOF page actually doesn't have the PFA requirements listed in on their page, and the new annual MILPER for officer ARSOF applications dropped and it had the following information.

(4) SF Physical Fitness Assessment (PFA) Scorecard and Body Composition Screening (if applicable). PFA results must be within six months of application date. The SF PFA consists of hand release push-ups, dead-hang pull-ups, and a two-mile run. All SF applicants must perform a minimum of 28 hand release push-ups, 6 pull-ups, and complete a two-mile run in 15:12 or less. When not administered by the SORB personnel, record SF PFA on a DA Form 705 (APFT version from 2010) with pull-ups annotated in the comments section. A valid Body Fat Content Worksheet must also be included if the officer does not meet basic height/weight standards.
