concrete5 8.5.4 is now available! Sometimes when we do a big release, we have to do another one pretty quickly. This is no exception. 

8.5.3 accidentally shipped some new features that aren't quite ready yet. 8.5.4 turns those off, but also makes available a ton of new features that we've had in our development pipeline, including Express search indexing improvements, the ability to export Express objects from the command line, a new custom attribute type of User Group, the ability to set file storage locations at the folder level, and much more.
