Blurry font on MacOSX retina, grey_antialias not helping, 3.2+



I love how my text editor shows text in build 3176. I have gray_antialias enabled. This is the image on the left.

On 3.2 or any build after 3176, I have turned aliasing on and off, set the default in terminal using this: defaults write -g CGFontRenderingFontSmoothingDisabled -bool FALSE, but no matter what I do, the font is bolder and blurrier. See the image on the right.

Macbook stats:
Running: 10.14.6
MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2014)

What else can I try? I’ve been staying on 3176 for this reason.



I’m seeing the opposite behavior. 3211 renders as expected while 3176 has thicker font. The difference in font rendering is due to apple removing subpixel antialiasing in 10.14.
