And for those of you who don't like to build your own copy of fVDI, the 
latest version on my web site now includes these updates. I thought 
this, together with the other recent update, was reason enough to bump 
the version number, so fVDI is now at v0.967beta1.

Works fine and looks as beautiful in real life as on that picture. :-)

Also far faster than I would have expected it to be, with software 
native side graphics rather than OpenGL (but text drawing is about the 
best case for the software drawing) and without any native side 
optimizations besides the "alpha-expand".

I was not, however, able to start PapyrusX with the latest ARAnyM and 
antialiasing support. It kept claiming to have a stack overflow just 
before it would normally have drawn the document window. :-(
I have not had the time to look into why that might happen.
Other software, such as QED and HighWire were fine.
