I'd like to submit a patch for JDK-8210058. I'm not a Committer, so I'll
need someone to sponsor this change.

The issue is related to the implementation of algorithmic italics in
FreeType font scaler. At the moment it uses FT_GlyphSlot_Oblique, but its
implementation doesn't take into account the glyph transform, previously
set using FT_Set_Transform, and FreeType developers don't seem to have any
interest in changing that (see
The proposed solution is to include corresponding shear transform
explicitly in matrix passed to FT_Set_Transform instead of using
Proposed patch doesn't add any tests, as the change only impacts glyph
rendering, and I couldn't think of a reliable way to test that
automatically. Existing automated tests from OpenJDK pass after the fix.
