Poor font rendering by "gnash" plugin
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:05 EST
Description of problem:
The current "gnash" package exhibits a very poor font rendering. Characters
look very "pixelish" and are barely recognizable [see screenshot].
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install "gnash" packages.
2. Go to a "Flash" animated web page with text.
Text is rendered poorly.
Text is rendered sufficiently well as by its "Adobe" non-free
The current version 0.7.2 is already more than half a year old.
Maybe an update from the current development tree brings some
improvement? Please reassign as relevant component "gnash" is not
listed in "bugzilla".

Forget about comment #2, issue fixed in gnash-plugin-0.8.1-5.fc8 thanks
to switch to 'agg' rendering engine.
