What font is used in this (retina) screenshot

What is the font used for code in the top screenshot at https://www.jetbrains.com/idea/whatsnew/ ?

I'm looking for a nice *light* font to use on my Retina MacBook Pro. I'm using Menlo now but it is too fat.

Ideally I would use Source Code Pro Light, but IDEA does not let me pick any of the variants so I think I'm getting Regular. (Is that a bug that I should file?)

Can anyone recommend other good fonts for retina displays?

I guess you are using IDEA with Apple JDK 6.
If you use the jdk-bundled IDEA, the font rendering will be lighter.

That's strange, I use Source Code Pro by myself (see attached screenshot).
Is the font installed correctly with all its variants? Btw to be displayed, you have to uncheck the "Show only monospaced fonts" checkbox.

There are something wrong.
There is only one Souce Code Pro in the font list.

I've been using the default font. To make the font look "nicer" I had to switch to JRE 1.8.
