This is quite important. No Microsoft standard TrueType renderer will anti-alias a font that specifies bilevel rendering, and no Microsoft ClearType renderer will do vertical anti-aliasing on a font that specifies no anti-aliasing vertically. I see many cringe renders from applications using FreeType incorrectly. And v38 should be permanently disabled until the subpixel renderer with no vertical anti-aliasing is finished.

This has been requested on the list a few times, and it should actually be the default for native hinting of TrueType fonts.
