Typeface/Font Difference Using JRE 1.8.0_211

Postby kwpsd » Wed May 22, 2019 10:49 pm

Servoy Version: 8.3.2.3207
JRE Version: 1.8.0_171
JRE Version: 1.8.0_211
Smart Client Only Running in Developer

We updated our JRE from 1.8.0_171 to 1.8.0_211 and noticed a change in the typeface/font (see attached graphics).

JRE 211 screen shot

When we change back to 1.8.0_171, the typeface/fonts look normal. Has anyone else seen this? How do we fix the typeface/font issue in 211? Nothing was changed in Servoy for these tests...just the JRE version.

Thanks!

this is a known problem for many years already (that it turn bold)
i already reported years back these problems at oracle, this happens in very specific situations i think
We here in the netherlands where more affected because i think it was bit related because we are many times in a mixed environment (english windows but in a dutch locale)

Can't do much about this, its the core font matching that goes wrong

Thank you, Johan, for the quick response. We have never come across this situation in the past, and thought it was something new. We will warn our customers about 1.8.0_211 should they attempt to update to it.
