Description Ahmad Azwa Kamaruddin 2008-07-20 09:50:12 PDT
While browsing the Versions SVN site (http://www.versionsapp.com/), the text: "★ Beta 4 out now: Fixes authentication bug introduced in Beta 3, and some other improvements. Click here to see the release notes." looks very fuzzy, and thus hard to read. The same goes with the texts at the very bottom of the page. When tested using Firefox 3 however, the texts are displayed just fine. Is this due to the way Safari/Webkit renders fonts? Please help, thank you.

It looks fine in Safari Version 3.1.2 (5525.20.1), but fuzzy in r35249 on 10.5.4 on a MacPro, so appears to be a regression.  I'm unable to change the priority or title though.

Update: It appears to be a regression as mentioned by Gavin Sherlock. The text looks fine in Safari 3.1.2 but not in the latest Webkit nightly builds.
