I should have been more verbose in my original report :)

When I said "previously" I meant:
From at least some time in 2006/2007 until August of 2010, <https://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/debian-reference/ch02.en.html> contained the phrase (I've just checked this with archive.org).
Some of us who made the switch to aptitude when this was the advice have just continued using it - it was only recently I discovered that the recommendation has changed to apt-get.

I've just installed a fresh Jessie VM with all the defaults and it does still come with aptitude installed, thus my surprise that it was missing from the cloud image.
It's not a big deal, I just thought its omission might have been accidental!
