ACF 5.8.4 Release

Advanced Custom Fields version 5.8.4 is now available. This is an update for both our ACF and ACF PRO plugins, and we encourage you to update your sites as soon as possible.

🎉 New – Lazy Loading Relationship Fields

This update offers improved performance for Relationship fields by reducing the number of HTTP calls made on initial page load. Relationship fields will now use a lazy loading technique to delay the population of the field’s choices (left panel) until the field is visible within the browser view.


This release contains the following changes:

*Release Date - 3 September 2019*

* New - Optimized Relationship field by delaying AJAX call until UI is visible.
* Fix - Fixed bug incorrectly escaping HTML in the Link field title.
* Fix - Fixed bug showing Discussion and Comment metaboxes for newly imported field groups.
* Fix - Fixed PHP warning when loading meta from Post 0.
* Dev - Ensure Checkbox field value is an array even when empty.
* Dev - Added new ACF_MAJOR_VERSION constant.
