What's new in CiviCRM 5.75

Custom Fields "is searchable" setting is now "optimize for search"
Previously, only custom custom fields that had the setting "is searchable" were exposed to the Advanced Search and to Reports. Having this flag also meant that the field was optimized for search (e.g. a database index). This was a recurrent source of confusion. Now all fields are exposed to search and reports.

WordPress WPML support
CiviCRM now provides a better integration with the WordPress WPML plugin (in addition to Polylang).

Big thanks to Andie Hunt, Alice Frumin and Jon Goldberg for putting up together release notes. See also the version-specific upgrade tasks. The last entry goes back to CiviCRM 5.67, regarding smarty tokens being phased of Message Templates.
