I don't think we should push this. It clearly looks significantly worse than 0.0.25 we had before. There are many issues with the spacing between glyphs in words, and between words. There are also issues with vertical positioning of glyphs and words in a few cases. I have posted more details to the desktop list.

I think we should stick with 0.0.25 for F28 unless the new series is cleared up so it's at least arguably approximately equal in quality, I don't think it's anywhere close to that yet.

The author acknowledged these issues on IRC:

(madigens[m]) adamw: thanks for the feedback :) cantarell's spacing does indeed look a bit funky... in gtk3 and firefox. that's due to a missing technical detail called "subpixel positioning". Spacing looks more consistent in Qt apps and Chrome. there also isn't any kerning yet, so things like AVA, To, etc. look gap-y

Of course, most of GNOME is "gtk3", and Firefox is the default Workstation browser.

  • Font Preview
    • Displays with overcompensation of x-widths in characters most notably in the character 'o'.
  • Libre Office
    • Passable at various sizes but some slight inconsistencies in x-width are noticed with lowercase characters
  • Gnome Text Editor
    • Further inconsistencies are noticed with x-width of lowercase characters regardless of counters or bowls (e.g.; e, a, and c cause illegibility in many words)
  • Firefox Windows
    • Worst display of all with lowercase characters "running into" each other
    • Uppercase characters x-width displays as expected
