It should always have worked this way, but I have my doubts as to how reliable it is. What the system attempts to do is denote the last post with a last file icon ()and all the previous ones with the white folder icon ().
But how accurate this thing is is suspect, since sometimes I see two or three last file icons, when viewing a thread. Thank goodness they are numbered
addendum - Looking at the prolific "class changin" post, I see that it looks more like it is marking today's message with the icon. So, in essence, ya, it does mark "new" messages in the hierarchical display.
