⚠️ ⚠️ ⚠️ This post is frequently updated! ⚠️ ⚠️ ⚠️

RoboFont 4.0 introduces several new APIs, like Merz and Subscriber. You are probably excited about the new opportunities offered by these modules, but how should you approach the update of existing tools? We got you covered. Every example shown in the RoboFont documentation has been updated to Merz and Subscriber. And the RoboFont team is also helping developers updating their extensions.

Here you can find a list of scripts and extensions before and after the update. Usually, examples are the best way to wrap your head around new concepts. If you updated a publicly available tool and you want to show it here, you can edit the documentation, or let us know on the RoboFont forum.
