Around the release of freetype-2.3.0 default font settings changed, i was faced with blurred fonts, unlike the nice fonts that i was used to.

My question are:

- Why are this default settings this way?
- Why isn't there a simple unblurred setting?

After after some searching i found, the settings i needed to at least restore semi-acceptable fonts. Over time i tuned it and ended up with the local.conf at the bottom of this e-mail.

My question is, isn't it possible to use more sane defaults when the bytecode interpeter is on and maybe try to improve the default selection of fonts (override fonts that look like crap).
Some fonts actually look quite good with just hinting.
