Java 2D to support LCD optimized anti-aliased text
I am waiting for
RFE: Java 2D to support LCD optimized anti-aliased text (sub-pixel resolution)
which is currently being worked on
"We are working on this for the mustang release. A very small amount of
new API will be involved but we expect Swing's Windows L&F and GTK L&F's
to pick it up automatically so apps using those won't need to do anything
so long as their desktop is configured to use it too (ie Swing will honour
the desktop setting). Apps will also be able to explicitly request
it for text drawing on a Graphics2D by setting a simple RenderingHint.

Any idea when this will be available? NetBeans seems quite ugly now that I have LCD (as do all other applications that do not use truetype).
