      Description

      A fix for JavaFX was just pushed :
        JDK-8188810: Fonts are blurry on Ubuntu 16.04 and Debian 9
        https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8188810
      which reduces the color fringing of text on Linux distros
      which enable cleartype font rendering in their bundled
      freetype libraries.
      The same fix is needed in OpenJDK/Java 2D
