They did give us some up-front notice, and I fixed the bug (it's 'only' a 
difficult-to-trigger DoS - I couldn't trigger it with the directions given), 
nobody could use it to break into a system. 

I meant to do the whole release thing as a result, but I've been tied up with 
trying to find a new place to live. Sorry.
