The most likely explanation is that Mailman's cron/senddigests is not
being run or it is encountering some problem.

Their upgrade shouldn't have affected this, but they need to see that
there is a crontab (either system or user) to run Mailman's cron jobs
and that they aren't throwing exceptions or errors.

One issue with cron errors is that often they are mailed by default to
the crontab owner which is usually 'mailman' which in turn is usually
the site list which doesn't accept the 'non-member post' or if it does,
no one sees it.

The site list should always accept non-member posts and the site mailman
admin should be a member of the site list and receive them.
