If "cracked" means "made useless for the purpose of verifying whether
two files are the same or not", then yes it has.

"Two researchers from the Institute for Cryptology and IT-Security
have generated PostScript files with identical MD5-sums but entirely
different (but meaningful!) content."

I'm sure there are likely some applications where MD5 is still fine,
despite the attack.
