The logic has not changed over the years. For the past 35+ years, I have used a UV filter over my Nikon lenses to protect it from dust, dirt, etc.
In addition to protection, the UV filter acts as a haze remover in outdoor scenes. Exceptions are if you want the haze as part of your picture theme. The UV filter has the undesirable effect of minimizing the exhaust from the race cars at the Indy 500! For these scenes, take it off.
