Have you noticed change in used fonts when going from JVM-1.6 to 1.7 (or 1.8)

I noticed that all fonts used in IntelliJ are a litlle less bright after I moved to using JVM-1.7 (or 1.8) for IntelliJ than they used to be for JVM-1.6 (I created screen-snapshots, to see the actual diff.)
I'd rather go back to the previouds ones, my eyes seem to be used to that....

I'm using latest 14.1.1, ultimate edition.

I found the answer by now: on stack overflow, it's an Apple versus Oracle issue.: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/18827868/why-are-fonts-in-java-1-7-different-to-1-6

Our bundles with custom JDK 1.8 already address this issue.
