...blizz do not give us cps on our portriat with new changes in current patch (like monks having from start of mop if I am sure) instead cps still stayed on traget ???
Yes, they didn't bother updating default UI. However, addons using UnitPower("player", 4) instead of GetComboPoints() can get around it now and display CP properly without target selected.
EDIT: also, releveant twitter discussion: https://twitter.com/CM_Lore/status/524275872400822273

I think at this point it's splitting hairs about wording. Yes I know about bugs with disappearing CPs, but having levelled to 100 on beta and participated in almost all raid testing so far I didn't really experience these bugs much. With proper addon CPs really feel and act like they're on a rogue now.
use elvui, it is amazing for such stuff <3
Yeah, this behavior is fairly rare and what we have now is better than before. However, does holy power ever disappear? Chi? Shadow orbs? Embers? Soul shards? Why should combo points?
Personally i hate the combo points on the target.
The constant hiding/showing is insane, i don't know how people can stand this.
I played rogue from Classic till MoP and personally if they redesign the UI and stick it on the Player frame? Perfect, couldn't give a damn about how iconic it is, it's a shit design.
When I started playing after the patch I didn't even notice anything changed (was doing the blasted lands quest). Then I remembered that it should be live now and... I agree that it's annoying but it's not too bad. CPs disappearing on certain targets during a boss fight is a bug, not something wrong with the new system. I Guess they could give us a CP bar beneath the place where the enemy portrait is, in the standard UI (moveable, just like the portraits). That way they're still at the enemy portrait but they're trackable all the time.

It'd be nicer mechanically if they were on the rogue. I guess Blizzard CBA to change it, though? Or maybe they're scared to after 10 years of them being on the target.
But I'm also of the opinion that the CP change was originally just a bug in an early alpha build that they decided to go with as a "feature".
