Fuzzy fonts in the alignment view on OSX Mojave (10.14.x)

On OSX Mojave, you may notice that sequences and IDs in the Jalview alignment window are hard to read. To fix this, first:

1. Save your work and shut down Jalview

2. Open a Terminal window (use spotlight or the Launcher and type 'Terminal' to locate the Terminal App), and type:


  defaults write -g CGFontRenderingFontSmoothingDisabled -bool NO

3. Start Jalview again and load an alignment to check that the fonts are now legible.

Jalview 2.10.5

Jalview 2.10.5 is a minor release that includes critical patches for users working with Ensembl, RNA secondary structure annotation, and those running Jalview on OSX with Java 10.
