Change record status: 
Project: 
Introduced in branch: 
8.x
Description: 

The new Entity API and Entity Translation API in Drupal 8 provides much easier access to field values in different languages. The field_get_items() helper function has thus been removed.

Drupal 7

<?php
$items
= field_get_items(EntityInterface $entity, $field_name, $langcode);
?>

Drupal 8

<?php
$items
= $entity->getTranslation($langcode)->get($field_name);
?>

See the corresponding change notification for more details on the Entity Translation API.
