The anti-aliasing for the IDE option is gone in build 1071! Now I think I know the story behind this: Since JDK 1.4.2_02, the hack you were using to implement this feature is no longer available. This is why the feature hasn't worked for several builds now. For build 1071, the feature is missing altogether. Does this mean you are giving up on figuring out how to bring this feature back? Please tell me this is only temporary!!!
