Description

When I just tested R1B1 rc1 (hrev52295+96, x86_64) in VirtualBox, and turned on sub-pixel antialiasing (and left on hinting) in the Appearance preflet, I noticed that the default font, Noto, does not render very nicely (see attached screenshot). It is more apparent for smaller font sizes, as you can see in the screenshot.
