Yes, it does.

It uses colors to show the different statuses for free/busy:

	grey: 	no information
	green: 	free
	red: 		busy
	blue: 	tentative
	yellow:	out of office

(See the legend in the add event dialog in the web client)

It also differentiates between required and optional participants by diagonally 
dividing the box. 

The upper left (and slightly larger, IIRC) color is for required participants, 
the lower right (and slighly smaller) color includes optional participants.

So you can for instance see a status of "all required participants available, 
some optional participants out of office" very easily.

And in the detailed display for free/busy you can even toggle the 
optional/required particpant status by clicking on the respective icon.
