I will not quote timing, because the official VM releases are published
when the platform maintainers (John, Andreas, Ian) are able to do so.
That said, I would not be surprised to see updates for the major platforms
appear over say the next month or so. As a rule, when new VMs are published,
the latest version of VMMaker is used, which means that Andreas' fix will
be automatically included in future builds for all platforms.
