I'll do that this week-end.

I've tried to sync the patchset with ubuntu's and failed and tried again a week or so later with more success. I then tried to commit them to devnull but couldn't connect. And finally, I added an ebuild for poppler-glib that enables antialiasing.
In short, there are up to date ebuilds and patches. I'll try to commit them again this week-end.

Bi3l, you are a hero.

Will you be putting Cairo 1.8.8 in lcd-filtering? (I still have layman set up to fetch lcd-filtering from SourceForge, and thus far I haven't needed the devnull overlay.)

Code:
billl@desktop ~/devel/devnull $ hg push
remote: ssh: connect to host core.ws port 22: Connection refused
abort: no suitable response from remote hg!

What's the problem ?

They are all related to versions of the ebuilds that do not have the ubuntu useflag.

Thanks for working on new version, but you shouldn't remove older one so quickly. Give people time for testing. New cairo [1.8.8] renders font Candara [default in my system] worse than 1.8.6 and now I can't even go back, because there's no 1.8.6 in devnull. I've tried reemerging some basic packages, but it didn't help with 1.8.8.

My fonts in Cairo look the same as always. I'm using the "ClearType" patch set, not "Ubuntu," and I have hinting disabled.

Difference between nice cairo-1.8.6-r1: http://img16.imageshack.us/img16/7823/screenshot2009070301433.png and ugly 1.8.8: http://img30.imageshack.us/img30/6315/screenshot2009070301421.png . Look for example on that "g" moved to the left or squeezed "m". Same config, same USE="X cleartype directfb glitz opengl svg -debug -doc -ubuntu -xcb".

Now I'm back with 1.8.6-r1 , downloaded from http://hg.core.ws/devnull/archive/6de39283cf40.tar.bz2 :)

Thanks for the archive link. I downgraded back to the older cairo and now fonts are back to normal in firefox.

One question about Opera fonts...

I installed Opera 10 beta from portage, the 64 bits and qt4 version, and fonts are very ugly. They are thick and with a lot of color fringing. Opera fonts change aspect when changing font settings from KDE4 System Settings panel, but they never look as good as the rest of the QT4 apps (Konqueror, for example).

Does anyone know if this can be fixed?

I just started messing with this (installing the overlay) and notice the cairo 1.8.6-r1 ebuild references a couple patches with "-" in the names but the patch files themselves use "_" fyi (*no_private* and one or two others).

No patchset yet, we'll have to wait.
