|Serial Field (serial)||✔||✔||2018-11-23|
Creates a field with a serial number, so you can have the equivalent of a MySQL AUTO_INCREMENT field for a content type (if nodes are deleted the old serial number is not reused).
Although this only has a dev branch which hasn't had updates since April 2016, it does work in D8.
