Invention jobs still requiring interfaces with Phoebe

Hearing that the new Phoebe release would involve some positive changes for us industrialists, I was eagerly awaiting its arrival. One thing that had me excited was that data interfaces would no longer be required, and further more, we would be refunded for them. This was all well and good, until I went to the invention screen, with the intention of inventing bpc's I have done hundreds of times, only to have some of them still requiring the use of a data interface. This was troubling, considering that there are NO MORE data interfaces around, therefor completely preventing me from inventing items I was able to just days before.
Many of us rely on invention for our in-game incomes, so I thought I would point this out and hopefully a CCP will take notice and get things straightened out ASAP.
I understand they have changed the skill requirements for several items, but this is not the case as I have all required skills. On the invention screen it still explicitly states that a data interface is required for invention.

The items I am specifically having trouble with are Plutonium Charge (S,M, and L) and Iridium Charge (S,M,L). Anyone else notice the same problem?

I am not having this problem with any of the other items I am inventing, just these two. However they happen to be an important staple in my game-play.

Thank you in advance for any help with this issue.

File a bug report or post this in the Phoebe issues thread. The devs aren't going to see it here.
