Released Sleipnir 5 for Windows(5.0.3)! Now with font rendering adjustment feature!category : for Windows, Sleipnir 5
Hello, I’m Nishida.
Today, we have released Sleipnir 5 for Windows(5.0.3) that improves font rendering and performance.
Improved font rendering (and about Web Fonts)
The development team is working towards improving the logic and optimizing parameters to achieve more beautiful font rendering. As a part of it, we have added a feature where users can optimize the font rendering to your environment and taste.
You can adjust two parameters: “Weight” to change the thickness of the character outlines and “Sharpness” to change the smoothness of the character.
We have changed the default settings a bit thinner and sharper, reflecting the feedbacks from users. If you would prefer the previous configuration, please select +1 for weight and -1 for sharpness.
Sleipnir 5 for Windows can express Web Fonts beautifully
