-Was that always there or was there a change?

That's how looked when this new information came out.

The more I look at this:
BMW Long-life rating LL-01 Synthetic Oils for BMW M vehicles equipped with S54, S62, S65 or S85 engines


...the more I am beginning to believe that LL-01 is okay. I'm reading it as, "If you have an M car with the S54, S62, S65, or S85, you can use LL-01. If your M car has any other engine, you cannot use LL-01." (such as the new M5/M6's V8)

I would've written it as:
For BMW M vehicles equipped with S54, S62, S65 or S85 engines: BMW Long-life rating LL-01 Synthetic Oils
