Level 3 MODIS CHL Product

Has the name of the MODIS-derived Level 3 4km chlor product changed (presently A{year}{Julian day}.L3m_DAY_CHL_chlor_a_4km.nc ) or is this product simply not available for day 002 yet?  Just want to make sure I didn't miss a file name change notification since I believe these types of changes are in the works.   I was able to retrieve that product for day 001, just not 002.  If there has not been a name change, but one is slated for this product, please let me know where (and approximately when) to look on the forum for this announcement.

The file has not been generated (yet).
The new naming convention will not be applied to the ocean color products until the next multi-mission reprocessing.  We do not have a firm date for that yet, but hope it will be sometime in the Spring.  An announcement will go out ahead of the reprocessing to inform users of the impending changes.
