There is at least 7 of them now. See this message on 18 Sep:

     The seventh GPS-IIF satellite, SVN-68/PRN-09, launched on 02 August 
2014, was set to healthy and usable last night.  This brings the number 
of satellites transmitting the L2C signal to 14 and those transmitting 
the L5 signal to 07.  The next GPS-IIF satellite, IIF-8/SVN-69 is 
tentatively scheduled for launch on 29 Oct 2014.

So I expect there to be 8 by now.

Indeed. Receivers exists that do track it never the less.
