Anchor label takes advantage of xPath just like the value of the link.

It is super-useful for the Advanced URL field that I'm building right now.

I tagged the release, it's ready to be merged.

Thanks.

If this will supersede Entry URL Field then I'd be happy to retire this, instead of another "advanced" field that provides existing functionality and a bit more.

URL field is meant to be a specialized field for URL selection. It will supply these means to enter/select data:

1 External URL via plain input (with URL validation)

or

2 Internal URL via SelectBox with Sections and Entries that contain an Entry URL field.

<option ="entry_id">Label from Entry URL</option>

Entry URL allows creation of frontend links for Entries.

The idea is to move away from hotlinks stored in plain Text Box and use internal ones generated by Symphony (configured via Entry URL).

Think at a Slides section that needs an link field. Text Box? Nah ...

IMO these 2 extensions do separate things and they do them good.
