Comment #3 on issue 191 by heue...@gmail.com: Disabling FRACTIONAL_METRICS
on Windows yields incorrect bounds for text PSwing components
There are some system properties on OSX that might affect how text is
rendered and how this rendering hint is applied:
Determines whether hardware acceleration is used to speed up rendering
of simple primitives like images, lines, rects, and simple characters. In
addition to using this flag, you need to enable Quartz 2D acceleration in
the Quartz Debug application, included with the Xcode Developer Tools for
Mac OS X.
This is strictly a developer option. Java applications intended for use
on Mac OS X should not rely on the presence of Quartz 2D acceleration.
The default value is false.
Determines whether Apple’s Quartz renderer is used instead of Sun’s 2D
The default value is true for J2SE 5.0 and false for Java SE 6.
Thus the OS check might not be sufficient.
See also Issue 117 which documents my frustration with Piccolo2D text
rendering in general.
