2011 BAS Rates

Update 18 December 2010:  It's official:  enlisted $325.04, officer $223.84.

Alright folks, I am totally confused.  I got an email today saying that the 2011 Basic Allowance for Subsistence (BAS) rates were out and that they were 0.36% higher than last year, then quoting the 2010 rates.  First, I'm confused about the fact that there isn't a change between last year's rates and the rates published for 2011.  Second, do they really mean 36/100 of a percent increase?  That would be $1.16 for enlisted folks and around 80 cents for officers.

Anyone out there have better info?
