"wrong number of arguments" on Upgrade to new version

I upgraded to 3.1.0.beta4 and now one of my plugins is not working anymore and i have a hard time figuring out how to upgrade this part of the code:

after_initialize do

  User.register_custom_field_type('myfield', :json)

  # We need to make it editable to allow API access
  register_editable_user_custom_field :myfield
  register_editable_user_custom_field myfield: {}  **<---- ERROR IS HERE**

  # This will add the field inside the post json
  add_to_serializer(:post, :user_myfield, false) {
    # Staff is Admin + Moderator
    object.user.custom_fields['myfield'] if object.user && scope.is_staff?


This is the error during upgrade:

/var/www/discourse/lib/plugin.rb:6:in `initialization_guard'
/var/www/discourse/config/application.rb:228:in `block in <class:Application>'

Could anyone give my a hint what changed and how i need to adapt my code?

Thanks and regards,

I found the answer: Add a custom per-user setting in a plugin

The first post was properly updated and i need to update my line to:

register_editable_user_custom_field [:myfield, myfield : {}]
