New iTunes + QT update bad for jailbreakers?

I haven't upgraded yet, but I haven't used iJailbreak yet either, and I may do so in the future. I'd prefer that option available to me even if I don't use it right now.

brick or at least disable current unlocking software, I assume. Am I right? Like I said, it's not too important to me, but I'd prefer to keep an open mind in the world of hacking.
