"They delayed the patch release" implies that the release has happened. "They delayed the patch release. It was originally supposed to be released last January, but it was not released until last March." "They have delayed" implies that the release has not happened yet. "They have delayed the patch release. It was originally supposed to be released last January, but it is now not going to be released until next month."
