As per an update sent out by ICANN earlier today the California not-for-profit is now offering applicants refunds of all paid fees (about $350M USD in total) if they would like to withdraw their application prior to the publication of the list of all new TLDs that received applications. The TLD Application System (TAS) exposed some of the filenames of applications to other applicants. The board authorized refunds with a resolution during their workshop in Amsterdam on May  6th.
