ALMA Finds Compelling Evidence for Pair of Infant Planets around Young Star

New observations with the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) contain compelling evidence that two newborn planets, each about the size of Saturn, are in orbit around a young star known as HD 163296. These planets, which are not yet fully formed, revealed themselves by the dual imprint they left in both the dust and the gas portions of the starís protoplanetary disk.

The two Saturn-mass protoplanets of HD 163296 have been added to EPE:

I don't understand why many other transiting and non transiting validated planets haven't been added. Updates have turned quite odd at EPE lately.
