      Description

      Antialiased portions of the NetBeans UI (text and icons) are not drawn correctly with the metal pipeline enabled. Text appears brighter, no blending is seen where it should be on images with an alpha channel. See attached screenshots.

      NetBeans is using "FlatLaF Dark" look and feel

      Update : See comments below -
      Rendering of icons is fixed by JDK-8256463.
      Text still appears brighter as compared to OpenGL.
      Take a screenshot of NB IDE and zoom-in multiple times to see the difference in text.
