|Old AntiAliased: note the high quality letter shaping|
Unfortunately, it looks like the "cloud" machines now hosting the site are not doing it the same way as the prior hosts. My guess is that there was GPU rendering on the old provider and without that a fast/dirty CPU fallback is used.
I tried changing hints, and some do improve the legibility of some text but makes other text far worse and pixelated. And even the "improved" text is... well, it doesn't look as elegant. *sigh*
|Old AntiAliased: looks the best to me|
|New AntiAliased: World names are ugly, subsector name looks good|
|ClearType: note the "jaggies" on the subsector name|
The good news is that if you're using a device with a high density ("retina") display, the problem doesn't appear since there are four times as many pixels for the renderer to play with, and that's the way of the future. It also doesn't affect print (PDF) output.
|New AntiAliased: High-DPI Rendering|
I'll keep tracking this issue and see if I can improve things. I may be able to selectively tweak the output (e.g. only for world details, if low-DPI, etc). I'll also ping the hosting provider.
