This feature has been substantially enhanced, allowing you to create a revision log and apply those properties to Parts as they're created.

PartsLab helps you manage Parts by creation date. This feature will help you track Parts created with each design update. If you are working in a PCL Construction Template and you have created Parts using PartsLab, there is a managed 3D view that visually filters Parts by creation date.

In this managed view:

Parts not matching that revision are all half-toned and 60% transparent
