Note: Do not delete Oxy Font Manager until you do migration to the Font Hero
We are excited to announce some significant changes to our plugin portfolio after careful consideration of our vision, focus, and user feedback. In this blog post, we will outline two major updates: the sunset of two plugins, Asura and Sandbox, and the merging of Oxy Font Manager with Font Hero. These changes aim to streamline our efforts, provide a better user experience, and consolidate our resources into a single powerful plugin.
Sunsetting Asura and Sandbox: After much deliberation, we have made the decision to sunset two of our plugins, Asura and Sandbox. While these plugins have served their purpose, we believe it is time to focus our attention on more robust offerings. By discontinuing these plugins, we can dedicate our efforts to enhancing our core products and providing better support to our users.
Merging Oxy Font Manager with Font Hero: One of the key updates is the merging of Oxy Font Manager with Font Hero. Both plugins share a common vision, but Font Hero offers additional integrations with all major builders, which sets it apart. By combining the strengths of both plugins into a single entity, we can streamline our development, maintenance, and support processes, resulting in a more cohesive user experience.
Benefits of the Merge:
The decision to merge Oxy Font Manager with Font Hero brings several advantages. Firstly, we can now focus on a single plugin, reducing the effort required for maintenance and new feature development. Secondly, by consolidating our documentation, bug tracking, and user support, we can provide a more streamlined and efficient experience for our customers. Lastly, the price difference between the two plugins made the merge an attractive option for both us and our users.
