This release has one big feature and some minor fixes. You can now use Font Awesome Version 6 icons on your site. Version 5 icons will continue to display as expected on the user-facing part of your site. Version 5 icons will not show up in your admin area when you look to choose your icons. Existing icons will show a “cancel” symbol when you edit them but will continue to display as expected to site users.
What changes will I notice?
You will see new icons available in the editing interface of the site corresponding with Font Awesome Version 6 icons.
