Description Adam Wight 2013-08-10 04:57:55 UTC
Ploticus PNG generation has multiple text rendering issues, which do not appear if we generate a SVG and then rasterize.

Should we make this method the default for all <timeline> invocations?
Comment 1 Bartosz Dziewoński 2013-08-23 21:46:07 UTC
Depends if the SVG methods is considered good enough now. Last time I checked it was an utter mess, but it might be better now.

(We should probably add something to the hash if we change the default to purge caches etc.)
