This is an issue that is out there for quite a while (31 May 2014) although I have just recently noticed it.

I have found confirmation here:
All You have to do is upgrade as usual (at least in Arch Linux). Open lets say Dolphin file manager. Browse to any folder that contains lets say Arch Linux iso. You will notice that the iso has a .txt file icon. Also if You right click on it and choose "Open With" You will get text editors.
Its not a major issue but it can be annoying :).
Thanks in advance.
