All I can say is YAY.
Maker, though the darkness comes upon me,
I shall embrace the light. I shall weather the storm.
I shall endure.
What you have created, no one can tear asunder.

This is not surprising given the fact that Congress repealed the law and the administration has publicly said that they believe the law to be unconstitutional. I doubt there will be any appeal, either.

Sort of surprised that the appeals court bothered to hear the case after DADT repeal was passed in December.

From the sound of it, it was needed to say "Now, get on with it."  because they were still enforcing things and there is confusion, (quite apparent from the article).

Hi Peter!  Glad you made it to the new board.  I'm not really sure why they bothered either, but I suspect it had something to do with the long time it was taking to implement the change, especially since the administration decided and stated publicly the original law was unconstitutional. Still most courts seem to take any excuse not to have to actually rule.
