Advanced Custom Fields version 6.2.4 is now available.
This release includes a number of bug fixes and improvements, along with fixes for license activation when using ACF as a must-use plugin.
As a result of this bug fix release, the previously announced changes to requiring an active license to use ACF PRO features have been delayed until a future version.
After the release of ACF 6.2.3, we received reports from users that ACF was not activated despite having a license key defined in code, and the updates page was not visible. This is an issue for users who use the Bedrock framework or other methods of loading ACF as a must-use plugin.
ACF 6.2.4 fixes two issues for this type of installation. Firstly, the updates page is now visible by default for these types of installation. Secondly, if you define your license key in code, ACF will now correctly activate your license for the site.
show_updates setting to hide
show_updates is set or filtered to false, ACF PRO will now automatically still activate defined licenses
