JGR users on Windows may be interested that Sun has released a preview of its latest Java development kit and runtime engine at


This removes the main problem I have had with JGR and other Java programs on Windows: poor font rendering. On Windows XP with an LCD display, the improvement is striking, as this uses Windows native font smoothing (CoolType). I believe it uses the default Windows font smoothing on other versions of Windows or other displays.
