While reading through the release notes for Magento 2.2.4 (devdocs.magento.com) I found the following: "You can now deploy static content on demand while in production mode".

Does anyone know what was changed with this? There's no reference to a pull request nor can I find anything changed in the documentation (devdocs.magento.com).

Previously, magento would automatically deploy static content in default and developer modes only. For example when you would try to deploy content in developer mode, you would see:

Manual static content deployment is not required in "default" and "developer" modes.
In "default" and "developer" modes static contents are being deployed automatically on demand.

This has now extended to production mode which is a welcome change!
