And one more screenshot using Liberatin 2.00 using the autohinter.

autohint=true  <- i.e. *not* using the byte code

always and then the results for


are compared.

hintmedium and hintslight give identical results.

hintnone is slightly fuzzier.

hintfull is slightly sharper.

But the differences are small, *all* of them are quite fuzzy.

=> using the autohinter, liberation sans 2.00 also never renders
as sharp as liberation 1.07 with the bytecode interpreter and hintfull.

No matter what settings are used for liberation sans 2.00, it will
always render much fuzzier then liberation 1.07.

I also think this has likely been done by some automated process,
I think byte code for very sharp rendering as in liberation 1.07
cannot be done automatically, it is a tedious manual process.
