Well, I recently noticed a new thread about Bitpim not working with the new V5 firmware and the guy had the first actual sighting of it. My wife just got in her new strawberry chocolate today it has the same firmware. Verified through BitPim and the phone itself.
I'm posting this in the hopes we can get the ball rolling out getting this new firmware to work as well as the 03 and 04 do with Bitpim.

Is it that BitPim doesn't auto-detect the phone?
Does it not read pix, ring tones, videos from the phone into the GUI?
does it no write pix, ring tones, videos from the GUI to the phone?
does it give error messages while browsing the file system??
Does it give error codes or messages? if so, what exactly do they say?
In other words... exactly WHAT Doesn't work?
It can't be fixed, until we know exactly what's "broke"!

Connecting to the phone works perfectly fine.
Attempting to Get any phone data or Send any phone data results in the following error: "Access to the file/directory has been blocked on this phone by the phone provider."
I am currently checking to see if accessing the file system allows me to read or write.
If it ends up that VZW has blocked this, it might move me closer to another carrier. Even if I find out a way to bypass it, the fact that I have to is annoying. Verizon's network is not becoming so exclusive anymore, and the massive mergers that are going on make other networks a viable alternative.

I flashed my 8500 with the V05 as well.
I don't notice any differences, but I only used my 8500 occasionally back in August/September, so I don't really know it intimately anyway. It hasn't been activated in a while, and it still isn't.
I can't see all the files in BitPim's Filesystem (using 9.0.8), and the ones I can see I cannot save.
And with LG Download 18.104.22.168 I can't put it in NV Edit mode - I've tried using the 8300 dll and the 8500 dll. I get an error that says "can't read pim/call_hist_nv.dat file from phone"
I'll try flashing back, but I imagine I'll get the same error as RichChrisB
EDIT: yeah, same error
EDIT2: and since no one mentioned it, the Bluetooth profiles haven't changed at all either: DUN, BT Diag, Audio Gateway, and OPP for VCards.
