I'd say that initiating depends on whether or not the friend knows that you used to date their new interest. If not, then I think you mention it. If they know, then you wait for them to ask if they want more information. I think pretty much anything outside the bedroom is fair game to talk about, as long as it relates directly to your experience dating that person. "This person hurt me in this way" is okay, but "This person told me that they hurt some other person" is probably not.
