R2019b introduced the new "arguments" section for function argument checking and parsing.
I hahe written some functions using the "old" input parser class. Are there any advantages to switch to the new syntax?
Is it worth to update my functions to the new syntax? (sure, I know, "never change a running system")
regards, Stefan

Hi Stefan, this is a question of great interest.
Have you figured out an answer yet? I am implementing a library and I can't choose what to use.

The biggest advantage of the arguments block is readability, but it is far less flexible than varargin. People who are not familiar with your code can quickly understand your parameter requirements through the arguments block.
Another potential advantage may be ease of compiler optimization. Overly flexible varargin is difficult to optimize for performance.

I have the same question. Both inputParser and arguments are unfamiliar to me.

@chicken vector: you can always use a comma-separated list, which works on every MATLAB version**:
options = {"parameters1", 1, "parameter2", 'foo', "parameter3", true}
myfunction(requiredInput, options{:})
** with cell arrays. AFAIK comma-separated lists were introduced at the same time.
