> IcedTea mercurial tip has now been updated to the OpenJDK b17 release.
To follow up a bit, there are some font rendering artifacts after this
push. I've discarded the font work that Kyle and myself did and
switched to the Sun freetype fonts in b17 (the native implementations
are very similar).
I suspect the artifacts are caused by the icedtea-antialias patch
(specifically, the modifications to FontStrikeDesc.java). The intent
was to change the text-antialias default to "on", as that looks much
better with Freetype, but it seems to be causing problems with the new
font stuff. Removing that part of the patch and rebuilding may fix the
rendering problems, but I won't have a chance to test it until next week.
