As you know, I announced in the hyphenation list the patterns
loader will change and even opened a discussion. On 2016-1-10
I posted the last announce, but there was no answer-- until it
was released a few weeks later.

Don't be so dramatic! ;-) It's quite useable if you preload patterns
with babel as I explained. If you need some help to fix polyglossia
asap, don't hesitate to contact me. I'll do my best and I'll prioritize
this task.
