Yes that is great news. Also I know I've been outspoken about the SLS engine program but NASA did take shipment on 6 new RS 25 engines that are being assembled at Stennis and will be tested in the single engine test stand

As things are, it's best that they fly what they have. Otherwise the hardware will just sit on a museum (at best).
