Clarification on changes in EPiServer.Forms 5.5.0


We upgraded to EPiServer.Forms 5.5.0 and did not verify e-mails from forms before going live. 

If we try a new form and put in variables they get formatted with :: instead of the old #-markers seemingly making old placeholder markers not work, e-mails show up without replacement made. 

Example of new insert vs. before:
::Sammanställning av samtliga svar::
#Sammanställning av samtliga svar#  

Suspect that this is related to this item:

Is there is some kind of announcement/guide/documentation available on what to do after getting this update?

Are we expected to edit all placeholders?

Hi Johan, we're so sorry for this inconvenience. We're working on a hotfix and will release a new version (5.5.1) very soon to fix this issue. With the hotfix, both placeholder formats will work, but I still recommend using the new one (with ::).
