Really just a feature request. It would be nice to have some sub-pixel font smoothing in Spark. Compared to Pandion I find it a bit harsh on the eyes.

We absolutely agree and are happy to report this will be fixed soon since Java 1.6 will be out soon. 1.6 includes support for sub-pixel anti-aliasing and it looks great.



I see that Java 6 is now released… :smiley:

Yep, I just blogged about this in fact:

Ah! Just finished installing Java 6 and re-installed Spark 2.0.7 using the Java-not-included option and have to say this rocks!!! Spark looks great with the new antialiased fonts! Thanks guys!
