Prior art is still in effect. See the full discussion at the web site 
below. The actual code:

(1)the claimed invention was patented, described in a printed 
publication, or in public use, on sale, or otherwise available to the 
public before the effective filing date of the claimed invention; or
(2)the claimed invention was described in a patent issued under 
section151 <http://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/35/151>, or in an 
application for patent published or deemed published under section122 
in which the patent or application, as the case may be, names another 
inventor and was effectively filed before the effective filing date of 
the claimed invention.

In addition only the inventor can file if the inventor published the 
invention (prior art) within the previous year. It is not a pure race to 
the patent office. After that year anyone can file.
