Equivalence of waveparticle duality to uncertainty principle

Main Question or Discussion Point

It says "Here's a nice surprise: quantum physics is less complicated than we thought. An international team of researchers has demonstrated that two peculiar features of the quantum world previously considered distinct are different manifestations of the same thing."

"This observation unifies two fundamental concepts in quantum mechanics."

Is it as ground-breaking as it sound, or just hyperbole?
I have little knowledge in this area. But my understanding was that uncertainty principle is linked with wave-particle duality. What new has been discovered?
