Set_value on date fields seems to have stopped working

After updating to:
ERPNext: v8.1.1 (master)
Frappe Framework: v8.1.1 (master)

I noticed that say for a Sales Order `cur_frm.set_value(“transaction_date”, “2017-07-07”) doesnt seem to work anymore. Anyone knows why?

I notice that this doesn’t work only if there is an existing date in the field. If it is blanked out it actually shows.

Working fine on my local setup. Are you on latest frappe/erpnext ?

@netchampfaris i wouldnt say super latest but maybe a week old. Did you try it on a field that has a date already?
