I usually create a bunch of value converters to get a clean representation of the database XML value in the views. This has always worked well, but in v6.2 that is no longer the case. I always get the result as DynamicXml object, which I would rather avoid. I would much prefer to get a nice strongly-typed object, but I can no longer override the built-in converter. Attempting that just gives me the "More than one converter for property type" YSOD, even though there is no specific property type converter for that datatype. I tested this with the Related Links datatype, but it seems to apply to every XML-based datatype.
Also, I have previously created a property value converter for the Image Cropper to be used on media items. This strategy no longer works, as the converter is no longer called. I just get a null value returned. Without the converter, I get a string back. The behavior should be consistent here, I should at least be getting DynamicXml and not a string. I am not quite sure whether this is the same issue or a different one - I am open to splitting it out into a separate issue, though.
This sounds like it is related to U4-3591, but of course without the JSON part. v6.2 seems to have imported v7's property value converter system, but not added the fix for this issue.
