Why isn't text as smooth as before?

Prior to uBar 3.2.6, fonts were "smoother". Is this a bug?


Prior to uBar 3.2.6, uBar used sub-pixel anti-aliasing. In uBar 3.2.6, this was replaced by regular anti-aliasing in order to eliminate shearing/corruption of animation in uBar. Unfortunately, it is not possible have both sub-pixel anti-aliasing and properly fluid animation at the same time.

Sub-pixel rendering is especially important for non-retina displays. With a retina display, fonts should appear appropriately smooth.
