Does the 2012 MBP 13" only allow 8 GB RAM?

Well, I have an aging Core2Duo 13" Macbook that's slowly dying, so I took the plunge and bought this from the Apple website:

MacBook Pro 13"
2.9GHz Dual-core Intel Core i7
8GB 1600MHz DDR3 SDRAM - 2x4GB
1TB Serial ATA Drive @ 5400
8x Double-Layer SuperDrive

I gotta 8GB of RAM going to be the max on these refreshed 13" MacBook Pros? I checked the specs and it sure looks like it. Either that, or I am blind. Thanks!
