ACF PRO 5.6.5 Update

This version provides a new framework & UI for Admin Tools, improves security and fixes a few bugs too!

New Admin Tools

This version introduces an updated Admin Tools page for Exporting and Importing field group data which not only looks good, but also provides a framework for adding new Tools! Checkout the new Export to PHP UI 👀🔥🔥!

Better security

Another great feature in ACF PRO 5.6.5 is the updated security for front end forms. We are proud to announce that all $_POST data will be sanitized via the wp_kses_post() function in attempt to reduce any XSS attacks 👍.
