Does this mean the bug will be fixed or does it mean that the functionality
has changed and I will be unable to display messages on the slim devices I
have ?

This is likely related to a known bug:

showBriefly is broken, so you only get from the time the text is shown until
the next automatic refresh. This used to be a fixed 1s refresh, but recent
updates have made this more an 'as needed'. sometimes the refresh cycle is
very fast, thus your display messages are lost.
