    What?! Are you blind? It's not more blurry. The color is washed out, more transparent.

    The bug has NOTHING to do with being blurry.

    Word wrapping has been broken since 4.6, and I bet it's still broken in 5.3. It was even bisected to the exact commit causing it, and no fix. Qt responsiveness, ladies and gentlemen.

    Every other app on my system works correctly. Qt 4, Gtk, Chrome, everyhing. Except Qt 5 and Java. Those two produce an abomination of a font rendering.

    And this doesn't even excuse the PCF rendering problem, which was reported since day one when Qt 5.0.0 came out. Wanna bet how quickly they would have fixed those problems if they affected the Windows version? We all hated Nokia, but boy, Digia doesn't lift a finger when it comes to Linux.

And as a I said things get fixed faster for Linux than for Windows because most developers at Digia uses Linux personally.

    That must be why they waited so long to support Wayland in Qt 5. Oh wait...

    Slight an no-hinting should work. It is Mac style hinting and a lot of people use it, it is also used when rendering to scalable canvases such as OpenGL. Then again I am using that, and have not seen any issue before, so saying it is completely broken for truetype and opentype is nonsense. Though ofcourse it is more blurry, that is the whole point, with weaker hinting fonts are more design precise and less pixel precise.
