Oregon's Blakely fix now law

As detailed in this article, in Oregon "Gov. Ted Kulongoski signed Senate Bill 528 last week, [in order to remedy] a flaw that the U.S. Supreme Court found last year in the criminal-sentencing guidelines of Oregon, several other states and the federal government."  Background on this state legislative Blakely fix can be found in this prior post; the full text of the new law is available here.  And this news, of course, only further contributes to my state of state Blakely excitement.

Interested citizen, I am wondering what this means for people that have an upward durational departure that was found by the appellate court to be illegal that weren't convicted of violent crimes. What can they do to the sentence when it is remanded to the lower court becaues the appellate court vacated the sentence? Can you please help me understand how this affects the people that are waiting to be re-sentenced? Anything will help.
