    Good news! For R32 we will have a real, edge detecting, not crazy expensive anti-aliasing solution in place. There actually was a system in before that was horrible.

    Up until now, the only AA that was available in the render mode we use was a super sample style AA. This means it renders the screen larger and then down resses to reduce jaggies. This is both expensive and not very effective.

    For R32 we will have a true, edge detecting and FAST AA system in place.

    Oh, and the above image is actually a screen shot that was then scaled up 400%.

    @Chris
    Will there be an option to disable sharpening?
