JDK8 b94 Download Removal

This is not to the JavaFX guys particularly. I'm not sure where to address

The download page for JDK8 builds claims that, "An issue was found in b94,
so the downloads were reverted to b93. When the issue issue[sic] resolved,
likely b95, the downloads will be made available."

Please don't do that.  What is going on?

I have already downloaded and installed b94.  Is it dangerous? Does it
contain malware?  Will it format by drive and kill my dog?

Now I need to know: Should I uninstall it?
(safe bet would be yes)
But more importantly,  has it done any harm?

Considering I installed it and ran my app with it,it seems what ever the
issue is, it isn't all that noticeable... considering all the other
"issues" in JDK8, why do you care so much about this one that you had to
take down the file?

Argh.  Some effective communication would be appreciated.
