We received some great feedback on the new duplicate-row and duplicate-layout features, and have made a few adjustments to improve the user experience. The first adjustment is to the icon’s design – previously the admin-page dashicon – to a lighter double box illustration made from pseudo-elements.
The second adjustment is to the icon’s visibility, which will now always be shown in the Flexible Content field layout title without the need to hold down the “shift” key.
A bug was discovered in our Gutenberg validation solution that prevented “saving as draft” after a validation error prevented the publishing of a post. This bug is now fixed, allowing users to save their changes after receiving a validation error.
An odd bug has existed for some time now causing HTML to jump between multiple instances of the same reusable block (when focusing on that block). We’ve implemented a neat solution to fix the issue and hope no one has been affected by this edge-case issue.
This release contains an improvement to our JSX parser which can now correctly handle custom CSS properties/variables. With this improvement in place, developers can use custom CSS properties within their JSX enabled block types! What’s this JSX nonsense all about? Checkout the ACF 5.9 – Exciting new features for more details.
We discovered a bug in the Page Link field where multiple occurrences of the same archive url – most commonly the
home_url() – were displayed in the drop-down choices. This bug has been fixed, ensuring all choices are unique.
During some recent work on the
ACF_Assets class, we accidentally removed two existing actions named “acf/admin_enqueue_scripts” and “acf/enqueue_scripts” 😱. These actions have been added back in, alongside some new actions named “acf/admin_head”, “acf/admin_print_scripts” and “acf/admin_print_footer_scripts” 😘.
🙌 Thanks to everyone who helped make this release possible. Think you’ve found a bug? Please post in detail a new support ticket.
