Contact Form 7 5.7.3

Contact Form 7 version 5.7.3 is now available. This minor update release includes several improvements and bug fixes.

Introduction of the output form-tag type

5.7.3 introduces the output form-tag type. This is a lightweight variant of the reflection form-tag type. They both reflect user input value, but unlike reflection, output only reflects the first item of values.

Also, while a reflection form-tag converts to a block-level element (fieldset), an output form-tag converts to an inline element. This means that you can embed output form-tags within a paragraph.

Requires: WordPress 6.0 or higher
Tested up to: WordPress 6.1.1
