I haven't really thought about it until now but it is a possiblity I guess. What about CTT+, CDIA+, or Convergence+? They don't seem to be very popular IMHO any way but I guess they could have the own niche.

Looks like Project+ is staying around. On the Prometric booking site there is an option to book beta exam PK1-003 for about a quarter of the price for the Project+ (2003 objectives). A search of the CompTIA site for PK1-003 returns nothing so guessing it's invite only.
Found on a Russian site of all places that it goes live today !Òåñò CompTIA - PK1-003 CompTIA Project+ Beta Exam

I agree with sthomas about them having their own niche. In fact, I recently received a survey for updating the project+, so who knows. I have also received a feasibility survey for a forensics exam, so it looks like CompTIA may be branching out into more arenas.

Think I'd like to see them do a forensics exam too as I've been doing some study on forensics in between other exams and would make a great entry level cert for the field.

Computer forensics is a very specialized and professional field. There are already several computer forensics certs, and none of them are close to being entry-level. Even the computer forensics classes offered at universities are quite broad and complex in the material they cover, and the professional training is quite rigorous and extensive. So all that being considered, I'm not sure that an entry-level forensics cert would hold much value to the field.

That said, there could be a need for a entry level forensics certification from what I see. Smaller local police departments or small to medium sized business that have a small IT staff could possibly benefit from an entry level Forensics employee.
