This bug was logged yesterday. It seems like something that should be tested more thoroughly!

BUG-000130643 - XY Table to Point in ArcGIS Pro 2.5 does not retain the number of length for the text field from the file geodatabase table in the output point feature attribute table.

Status: New.

I broke my usual rule of not installing .0 versions of ESRI software!

I can almost guarantee that if you didn't install 2.5.0 and report the bug, that it would be waiting for you with 2.5.1.

You might be right. I was unaware that a text field could be 5000 characters long.

ESRI did not notify me. Is there a list of bugs fixed somewhere?

I think I may have misspoke adding to this thread.  It appears that I encountered this bug using the XYTabletoPoint, not displayXY.   When I noticed that 2.5.1 was released and fixed the 'ToolValidator' object has no attribute 'isLicensed' bug I immediately downloaded it and reran my script.  It worked!  I assume both commands were hitting the same bug.

Not only that I can run the script in my IDE instead of just as an ArcGIS tool.  Happy days.

Yes there is a list of bug fixes:

Fiona - in reviewing the internals I see that the bug listed in not yet fixed in AGP 2.5.1 nor is it listed in our AGP 2.5.x Release Notes  I did a search for XY in the Release Notes and found 1 occurrence for a somewhat related BUG in the sense it had to do with the XY Table to Point.  Those details are "BUG-000128741 - The XY Table to Point tool fails when the input table has fields with special characters in the names, such as Lat (degree symbol) and Long (degree symbol)."  

I don't have the 2.6 AGP Help doc yet as it's not yet released.

Ok thanks. I could not find it and they seems to have closed the Bug so I will reopen the ticket and see what is going on.
