That's not really true. I believe it just started installing wide spread in the last day or two. Prior to that it was selectively available.
One of the things I read in the release notes was the addition of the color,yellow to the strength meter. The yellow was supposed to indicate a marginal signal. On a few of the transponders I get a reading of 52-58, which I would consider a marginal signal. There is no yellow color. I guess they'll be a version P2.60 real soon.
