Bezier hinting doesn't generally seem to work here in Finland yet. The
roads that I edited were definitely unhinted, and all the neighbouring
roads still are. I took a quick look at Helsinki (the capital) too, but
it's rather jaggy there too. I found two ways here in Turku that
apparently are hinted, but not more.
I remember reading this bezier system being planned, but understood that
it wouldn't be nearly ready yet. Is it indeed ready for use, and will it
be the default method for rendering maps? Is it coming to Mapnik too?
What about other renderers? If it will be used for all rendering in the
future, that will make drawing nice curves much easier :-)
