Reports are now trickling in:

I gave it a spin on two of my test systems. Neither are a suitable model
for getting a ucode update, so it's of pretty limited meaning, but they
were fine.

I also have a vulnerable laptop:

processor       : 7
vendor_id       : GenuineIntel
cpu family      : 6
model           : 142
model name      : Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-8550U CPU @ 1.80GHz
stepping        : 10
microcode       : 0xca

which is listed as updated:

CFL-U43e     D0       6-8e-a/c0 000000ca->000000d6 Core Gen8 Mobile

I booted the ISO into the setup and confirmed that the ucode revision is
now 0xd6. So looked good to me.
