Wondering if the 5D III's that are shipping now still have the black tape fix for the light leak issue, or whether that was just a temporary fix for the stock on hand and they have a more permanent fix for the bodies being manufactured now?

The tape fix is permanent.  No reason to do anything different, its a commonly used process throught the photography world.  Sometimes they use a fancy name like light baffle, but its always just a piece of plastic or paper.
