Does this mean SymbOS itself now supports linear graphics as well?

Somehow yes, but there is still the limitation, that the width of a graphic can't be larger than 255 bytes. You also can't plot more than 255x255 pixels with one command, so you have to send 2 commands to plot a linear graphic with a width of 500pixel as an example.
