           Summary: Different render in the original and 1.0.4 version
           Product: Fedora
           Version: rawhide
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW

        AssignedTo: cchance redhat com

    Classification: Fedora


Description of problem:
I was using the LiberationSans version from the original announcement at
https://www.redhat.com/f/fonts/liberation-fonts-ttf-3.tar.gz (now 404). I
replaced it with 1.0.4 from https://fedorahosted.org/liberation-fonts/ . I use
this fonts in a game engine that is ported from Windows, and that was using
Arial originally. The font rendering is done through SDL_ttf (with style
TTF_STYLE_BOLD) which itself called libfreetype6.

The new version of the font has a decreased quality. I attach 2 screenshots
with the 2 different versions. Check for example the "y": the top of the letter
isn't aligned with the top of the other letters.

Note that the screenshots are taken from Debian Lenny, whose libfreetype6 has 
TT_CONFIG_OPTION_BYTECODE_INTERPRETER activated.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
1.0.4

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
The game is in development, I don't have a short procedure to install the game
right now, but let me know if you're interested in that.

Actual results:
Irregular letters. Apparent regression in font quality.

Expected results:
Improved quality ;)
