      Description

      Font rendering for some fonts has regressed. I cannot say what say what goes wrong, but the the text looks a lot less "dark" than it used to. See screenshots. The font used is "Source Code Pro", see http://blogs.adobe.com/typblography/2012/09/source-code-pro.html and http://sourceforge.net/projects/sourcesans.adobe/ for download.
