MacBook Pro battery swelling and dying

Apparently due to overheating sometimes a notebook battery swells up causing loss of keyboard functionality and even the notebook itself. Well it seems that this fate has dawned upon earlier MacBook Pros. Check out the damage:

It seems that Apple is only addressing this issue on a case-by-case basis. I haven't heard anything as to whether this affects the newer MacBooks. Also, no news yet as to whether it affects a certain range of serial numbers but since I myself have a MacBook Pro I'll be sure to update here whenever any new news pops up.
