The ACF Table Field Add-on plugin was developed for personal use in September 2014 and found its way into the WordPress plugin repository in January 2015. It became somehow useful for many developers, but not useful enough. The requested functionality exceeded my capacity for a free plugin. Development of the Pro version started at the beginning of 2017. But it wasn't until May 2024 that it could finally be published.

Thanks, Johann
