It's the last day of having both, dual-feed of both current values (RCSVALUE) & scaled values (RCS_SIZE). RCS_SIZE 

I.E what they said

USSTRATCOM has added scaling of RCS values to the SATCAT. Until 18 Aug 14, there will be a dual-feed of both current values (RCSVALUE) & scaled values (RCS_SIZE). RCS_SIZE has 3 values: Small (< 0.1m2), Medium (0.1m2 – 1m2), & Large (>1m2). Space-Track will show only scaled values starting 18 Aug (RCSVALUE will show static value of 0 in satcat, satcat_debut, & decay classes). There is no change to CDM spaceflight safety notification info or procedures. Contact admin_at_space-track for more info.
