I realise there may well have been a need to refactor the templates system in Cyclone, but rolling this out through the WordPress plugins auto-update system without even a warning is not good!
All of us using a custom templates directory / custom template just had our sites broken with no warning. Thankfully in my case that’s one site that’s still in development, but I’m guessing for some people it’s angry calls from clients time…
You really need to include some kind of fallback to the old template engine, even if it’s only for a limited number of releases (I appreciate that you aren’t charging for this software) with an alert warning that modifications are needed due to the use of deprecated code.
