We've added default lazy loading for the
image_tag when it occurs in sections further down the page.
We've also added new section properties so you can customize this behavior as well as fix other web performance issues dependent on layout position:
section.index - the 1-based index of a section within its location
section.index0 - the 0-based index of a section within its location
section.location - the location of the section (e.g., template, section group type, etc.)
You can now fix performance anti-patterns like lazy loading images above the fold and layout shifts due to async CSS loading without depending on section settings.

image_tag behavior and how to use the new section properties.
