Custom actions disappeared from the page layout editor with Winter '16

Once Winter '16 was rolled out to sandboxes, Customer's custom actions disappeared from the page layout editor, even though they continue to exist in the page layout metadata and in the widget at the top of the page (on Salesforce1 Actions and Quick Actions tabs).
Global Publisher Layout editor was not affected.
Any entity (e.g. Task or Global) that didn't have the "NewNote" action was properly upgraded to Winter '16, but when the entity (e.g. Account or Case) had "NewNote" on the layout, there were issues with the layout's upgrade and causing the issue.
Even though the actions are still exiting in the metadata, if the PLE is saved with the actions not showing, they will be removed from the metadata. The actions can then be added back to the layout as a workaround.
Currently, available workaround is to add the actions back to the layout.
Is it Fixed?
