For supporting VST3 in our next release I have just built our software with a newer version of JUCE and everything works fine, just the font rendering output has changed.
We were happy with the font rendering in version 2.0.40 all the time, so I was really surprised to find so many old posts in here about the supposedly bad text rendering. But now with the new version we aren't happy anymore. Some letters are drawn to fat and the whole text does not appear to be as well-balanced as it was before. I append some examples.
We don't want to release the software like this, so we would like to revert the changes which were made in the font rendering because the alternative would be to try to get vst3 running in 2.0.40 and this would be a very hard job, I guess.
How can I replace the new font rendering with the old one?
