Description Andrew Ter-Grigoryan 2013-11-18 22:53:52 EST
There are a couple of issues I've noticed with the Cantarell font in F20 beta, related to hinting.

For some odd reason, turning the hinting with Tweak Tool from 'medium' down to 'slight' results in a SHARPER display. By default, the font in F20 isn't quite hinted enough ... and it baffles me why turning it down has the inverse effect!

Secondly, I've noticed at least one distortion within the default font in F20, and that is with the bold "r" at some sizes (notice that the curving branch of the letter is too high ... this is also fixed by turning the hinting down to 'slight.'

Hopefully by the time F20 launches, we'll have a crisply rendering Cantarell font without kinks.
Comment 1 Fedora End Of Life 2015-05-29 05:47:58 EDT
This message is a reminder that Fedora 20 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 20. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora  'version'
of '20'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 20 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Comment 2 Fedora End Of Life 2015-06-29 08:59:14 EDT
Fedora 20 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-06-23. Fedora 20 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
