Archive with scrinshots, fonts and QtCurve theme.
In release 2.6.4, a new hinting mode for TrueType fonts was added, which enabled by default to activate sub-pixel hinting for TrueType. This broke the work of full hinting.
The text became smeared, fuzzy, difficult to read and dangerous for eyesight, since after 10 minutes of reading the eyes begin to hurt, which I show in the screenshots.
Perhaps this does not happen with all fonts and on other fonts it looks different. To fix this, I propose to attach an additional optional package with a bash profile that will switch the TrueType Interpreter to the old version 35.
