=============================================================================

Note (27 Mar 2021): In some situations freetype 2.10.4 can render TrueType fonts less clearly (a user-specific subjective view, based on preferences for font readability) than in freetype 2.10.2, which might be due subpixel rendering being enabled by default in new versions (freetype >= 2.10.3).

For instance, this issue has been seen when running applications through older versions of the Wine compatibility layer. If this issue is observed with the latest freetype then using an earlier TrueType interpreter might help. Simply add the following environment variable export to a startup file (ie. ~/.bash_profile or ~/.profile) that is loaded on user login:

export FREETYPE_PROPERTIES="truetype:interpreter-version=35"

In some situations it may also help to add two additional configuration properties (see last two links below) making the export line as follows:

export FREETYPE_PROPERTIES="truetype:interpreter-version=35 cff:no-stem-darkening=1 autofitter:warping=1"
