The following happens on GNU/Linux Kubuntu 8.04.
Curent trunk (a few minutes ago) looks to have lost the antialias. Now
Emacs appears horrible. The build I did less than 24 hours ago looks very fine.

Perhaps it's because of my change, but by just "horrible", I
don't know what's going on.  At least, in my environment,
xft backend works well with antialias.

I have tried also on Cygwin[1], and the result is different.

On Cygwin I have /.Xdefauls:

Emacs.FontBackend:      xft
Emacs.font:             Bitstream Vera Sans Mono-14

Xft*antialias: true
Xft*autohint: true

The look is fine (better?), but the height is 13 not 14.

Now, to obtain the height 14 as with previous build, I must put

Emacs.font:             Bitstream Vera Sans Mono-15

in /.Xdefaults.

On GNU/Linux Kubuntu 8.04 the result is still 'horrible' with "DejaVu Sans Mono-12" and "BitStream Vera Sans Mono", but is fine with "Monospace-12".

On Kubuntu I do not use /.Xdefaults but I start Emacs as

emacs23 --font "DejaVu Sans Mono-12" &
