comment Fontawesome doesn't scale up
@cfr I never delete answers (unless they are really wrong) and I don't expect other to do it. We are not at a race here. The world is large enough for all of us and for more than one answer with similar content. And you are right about the \DeclareRobustCommand. It was a bit late yesterday.

Did you run the update manager in admin and user mode?

comment \setmainfont error with most recent fontspec version
@JosephWright: That here is the other way round: fontspec is too new and \str_case:nnF is unknown. Einbandi: Update the l3-packages.

comment Insert negative of \widthof into \hspace without defining a newlength
@DavidCarlisle: While one add can the support for \widthof to hspace (see tex.stackexchange.com/a/99242/2388), the negative -\widthof{..} doesn't work -- neither in the \setlength nor elsewhere.

comment How to prevent particular hyphenations of a word *without* specifying allowed hyphenations
Only the setting for the last word in \hyphenation{incorrectly incor-rectly incorrect-ly} will be taken into account (but only if you set hyphenmins to a smaller value). Use \hyphenation{incor-rect-ly} to describe all the allowed hyphenations.

comment Why does fontspec interfere with Ligatures? (In retrospect: How the dutch hyphenate)
That's a ligature that works only with OT1-fontencoding, you would loose it with T1 too.

I suggest to try tcolorbox instead of mdframed, it is more robust.

comment Transfer a makeindex example to a xindy example
Imho it is not possible (without recompiling xindy) to change the actual and quote character. Sadly xindy isn't perfect either. There are open problems regarding utf8, hyperref and the input. So probably you will have to preprocess the index argument before xindy sees it. E.g. xindy needs ` \index{B""uro}` so you could do something equivalent to \appto\@sanitize{\shorthandon{"}\def"{\string"\string"}}

comment supporting both \"u and ü
Looking at your file: don't mix 8r and 8t fonts. These are different encodings. Stick to 8t.

comment Biber suddenly failed, related to old problem but std fix doesn't work
Well what you should do depends on the source of the error. If the problem is in your code (e.g. some faulty entry in the bib) then reinstalling everything will not help. Try some simple hello-world examples with biblatex-examples.bib first. Also if biber is faulty then normally it should be enough to reinstall biber.
