[Updated to version 1.1]
This macro makes a simple update of the FEA (AFDKO-syntax) feature definitions from version 1.6 syntax used in FontLab Studio 5.0.x to version 2.5 syntax used in FontLab Studio 5.1. You can use this macro in FontLab Studio 5.1 beta or public preview to "fix" the FEA definitions in your OpenType panel in an older VFB file created using FLS 5.0.x.
Note: FLS 5.1 build 4311 and newer automatically decompiles feature definitions into FEA 2.5 syntax when opening an .otf or .ttf file. Running this macro is only recommended if you have older VFB files that still use the FEA 1.6 syntax.
After installation, the macro is accessible from the OpenType panel macro flyout menu.
