Field Permissions 7.x-1.0-beta1 comes with an entirely new user interface, passing SimpleTests, additional documentation and a slew of bug fixes. When upgrading, be sure to run your update.php. Special thanks for this release go to David Rothstein, Jeff Noyes, Stellina McKinney and Gabor Hojtsy, all of who put a huge amount of love and care into the module.
First beta release for the Field Permissions module.
If you were running the -dev version, then please visit update.php. The field settings have been changed to provide more granularity, and a new option for "Create field" permission has been added. See the screenshot on the project page.
