Core compatibility: 7.x
Release type: Bug fixes, New features

Release notes

This new beta release includes a variety of key new features: Address Field Tokens, per-address component Views field definitions, correct autocomplete element names, a Migrate handler, and more. A key bug was fixed, too, in that whether a name is entered via first and last name fields or the single name line field, all of the name columns will be populated.

I was hoping to also include the patches for configurable empty value support and for a new address field form element type, but ultimately they were dragging a release out longer than needed. The bug fix and new features were worth distributing sooner rather than later, thus a beta5.

There is at least one contributed module adding Address Field tokens, and the approach of the patch in this release is to be compatible with the existing module while still attempting to replace its implementation. Users are encouraged to switch and to open feature requests for tokens and other settings found in other modules that may better be placed in this module.

Please note that while I didn't include many address format updates in this release, I will be tackling those as soon as the two previously mentioned features are implemented. Then this module will more or less be ready for a 1.0.
