Actually, MorningGnu, the creator sent us RC1 of the new version which does support repeater fields. So far it’s been very useful to us and the DB size is much smaller this way than with native ACF table methods. The new form data is stored separately and is easily searchable with our own SQL queries.
They are apparently working on a built in method of porting old records over to the new system which will be of great help although they offer a template to do it yourself.
