The text clarity improvements in WPF4 bring WPFs text rendering to near GDI compatibility. Below is another set of comparison shots between VS2008 (GDI) and VS2010 (WPF4). These were taken with the newly released VS2010. I have intentionally not marked which screenshot is from which version of VS. Test yourself and see if you can determine which is which. A key is below, but don’t cheat 🙂
