textbooks suitable for the new AP syllabus

I suddenly have to make a quick decision about selecting a
textbook for next year.

I have copies of several of the reform or reformish texts that
might be suitable for the new AP syllabus:

Dick & Patton
Ostebee & Zorn
Harvard
Stewart (Calculus: Concepts and Contexts)
Foerster
Finney, Thomas, Demana, Waits, ...

Two questions:

(1) Are there others I should be looking at?

(2) Does anyone know if either of my two favorite non-reform
texts -- Anton and Larson & Hostetler -- have been revised
to be more aligned with the new AP syllabus, or are about to
be so revised?
