I've attached an update to the bug report that may fix custom fields for those who are still having difficulty with them in 3.4.2.
My source control system didn't pick up 3.4.2's template.php. Works fine now.
Hotfix doesn't work for me. No custom fields showing.
My bad. I'm not worthy. Egg all over my face.
I´ve totally missed the panel settings. Everything works A-OK now after I acivated the custom fields in the panel settings.
This just show´s how used I got to my old WP-rig...
Sorry for bothering you.
Update: The hotfix plugin does not work any more with WordPress 3.4.2.
It worked fine until I updated PHP to 5.4.7 from 5.3.17. Now, when creating a new custom field it lands in a big pink box with red border, right above the existing custom fields, and in order to create another custom field the post must be updated/saved just like before
Update: Hotfix works fine. Sorry for the false alarm. The error was caused due to wp-config.php had a UTF-8 encoding. Changing to UTF-8 without BOM fixed it.
