Release Summary

We have optimized the performance of update and create option operations for customfields with many thousands of options. Before it took up to minutes for a new option to be created if a field had around 5000 options. Now it works within seconds. You can read more about it in our blog post about importing 10,000 options in a performant way.

Furthermore have we fixed a tiny bug in the Audit Log functionality where a field was logged as null instead of true/false.
