Fonts Perfect After Todays Update!!

Just wanted to say thanks to whoever fixed the font issues!

I have been really struggling to get my fonts looking good again after the fontconfig 2.10.1 update. I finally got them to be livable after getting the proper symlinks in place (and my local.conf in place), but they were not quite as good as before. Then today I went and updated my system and they look fabulous again!

FYI, this is what my configuration looks like. I use the standard fontconfig packages (non-patched).

/etc/fonts/conf.d

20-unhint-small-dejavu-sans.conf
20-unhint-small-dejavu-sans-mono.conf
20-unhint-small-dejavu-serif.conf
20-unhint-small-vera.conf
29-replace-bitmap-fonts.conf
30-metric-aliases.conf
30-urw-aliases.conf
40-nonlatin.conf
45-latin.conf
49-sansserif.conf
50-user.conf
51-local.conf
57-dejavu-sans.conf
57-dejavu-sans-mono.conf
57-dejavu-serif.conf
60-latin.conf
65-fonts-persian.conf
65-nonlatin.conf
69-unifont.conf
80-delicious.conf
90-synthetic.conf
99pdftoopvp.conf

</fontconfig>

Please use [ code ] tags for posting snippets of code. It makes the code more readable and - in case of longer listings - more convenient to  scroll through.
