I am working with VEP and I found this interesting plugin: dbNSFP. Based on VEP instructions:

Release 3.5a of dbNSFP uses GRCh38/hg38 coordinates and GRCh37/hg19 coordinates.
To use plugin with GRCh37/hg19 data:

head -n1 dbNSFP3.5a_variant.chr1 > h
cat dbNSFP3.5a_variant.chr* | grep -v ^#chr | awk '$8 != "."' | sort -k8,8 -k9,9n - | cat h - | bgzip -c > dbNSFP_hg19.gz
tabix -s 8 -b 9 -e 9 dbNSFP_hg19.gz

I noticed that now the current version of the DB is 4.0.

Can I operate the same conversion as stated for the 3.5? Or shall I use this older version with less data available?

Thanks in advance for any help!

You can configure the dbNSFP plugin to use whichever version you like. However, we haven't done any testing with the new beta version and we won't start until there's a full release; from prior experience we expect this will be out in the next month or so.
