            Bug ID: 1564719
           Summary: hinting of "ti" ligature does not match other letters,
                    x-height is slightly too low
           Product: Fedora
           Version: 27

I noticed this after upgrading Fedora 26->27, specifically from:

freetype-2.7.1-10.fc26.x86_64
lato-fonts-2.015-3.fc26.noarch

to:

freetype-2.8-8.fc27.x86_64
lato-fonts-2.015-4.fc27.noarch

Not sure if the problem is in Freetype or the Lato font. Rendering of all fonts
on my system changed visibly after upgrading, but Lato in particular changed
quite noticeably. However the only problem seems to be with the "ti" ligature
in Lato, so I assume it is some wrong/missing hinting data on that ligature. I
don't see any problem with other ligatures like "fi".

Screenshot showing the problem is attached.

This is using Lato, size 12, as my GTK UI font in Xorg:

$ xrdb -q | grep Xft
Xft.antialias:    1
Xft.hinting:    1
Xft.hintstyle:    hintslight
Xft.rgba:    rgb
Xft.dpi:    110
