In this new version, the header image option has been replaced by the WP built-in custom-header.
It won’t change anything for you. Your previous header image will be preserved if you used a header banner image.
The custom-header WP option is cross theme, just like your site title or tagline. It means that if you’ve been setting a custom header in another theme supporting this feature, you’ll find the same settings and previous images uploaded for this option. This is a recommended practice for themes on the WP repository that helps ensuring compatibility between themes.
Developers can find detailed information about the WordPress custom header on the following pages :
This new release is safe for child theme users. No template changes.

- improved : implement add_theme_support( ‘custom-header’) with the header_image theme_mod, in place of the previous header-image hueman option. Ensure retrocompatibility with the previous option.
