It's never worked like that. For the link color to change when new messages are added to a thread, the URL would have to change, and that hasn't been the case.
Using visited link coloring for this is problematic for us. It also doesn't work when you view individual messages and then go back to the Messages view, because the URLs (unfortunately necessarily) have to be different.
The solution to this is for us to keep track of what you've read and what you haven't. Which is on the TODO list but is a big amount of work. Or alternatively use a simple algorithm like "if a thread has new messages in the last 24 hours..." but I think that would be unsatisfactory to most people.
