BeOS & Derivatives Haiku R1/Alpha 4 had a couple critical bugs that were immediately identified and resolved shortly after release. These issues affected a significant number of users, and Haiku developers felt it made sense to do an Alpha 4.1 point release to provide a better experience for subsequent user downloads. The new download links and torrents have been provided, and they encourage people to update.

How about the machines which can't boot from USB and still have a floppy drive? Could a boot floppy be created with the updated code and allow booting Haiku to perform an install from the CD-ROM?

The T4x series did not have a floppy drive but could boot from an USB floppy. There are probably many other laptops from the same era which could do the same. And a boot-floppy is a lot smaller to download then a CD-ROM image even if it is compressed.

It is excellent that the Haiku team figured the issue out and fixed it quickly. I had downloaded R1A4 had had problems with systems which had no issues with R1A3.
