    Want pretty fonts in X ?

    One of my personal favorite hackers David Chester just put out a new release of his Xft hack, this time he uses a slight bit of hinting and I must say, even though I thought that the last version was PRETTY and PERFECT in any way possible, this one beats it.

    here are screenshots.

    So gentlemen, start your downloads !

    Bah, this is mostly for KDE users. Other window managers users are left behind.

    should work for every window manager that has AA support (gnome2, XFCE iirc, kde, ...)

    if window managers don't support it, ask them to

    Of course. The clean font is really nice, and helvetica is perfect for non-terminal usage.

    I thought I was the only one! *I hate AA fonts with a screeming, purple pasion.
