        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
