5.8 Release

  • Hello! I am excitedly awaiting an update to beta or release of ACF Pro 5.8 with Gutenberg block building support. I work at Pantheon and have some agencies asking about how they can plan to continue to use ACF for their custom work and when ACF 5.8 will be released. Any chance there are some behind-the-scenes soft deadlines set yet?

    We’re an agency building WP sites and up until now have held off moving to anything Gutenbergy, instead sticking to Classic Editor and existing modular ACF approach. It’d be really good to hear what the roadmap is for Gutenberg ACF Blocks – broadly we’re trying to make the decision about 1) whether to move in this direction or 2) ignore Gutenberg completely and continue as we are or 3) move away from ACF.

    I think 1) is definitely our preferred – but would need some reassurance that the approach being taken with ACF blocks is sustainable in the long term.

    Be good to hear what’s happening, and when.



  • Elliot said that he’s working on 5.7.12 and hoping to get it out today, then moving to 5.8 beta-4 which will include the 5.7.12 changes and any new work towards getting 5.8 officially released so we can get to building custom blocks.
