In light of yesterday's unveiling of its Macbook Pro (with Retina Display), seems like good time to restart this question:
What do you see as the future of TrueType hinting? The short-term value is obvious. I get it. I'm with you.
But when breaking out the checkbook, how do we measure the value of hinting in the context of improving rasterizers, iOS's limited appetite for hinting, screen resolution, etc.?
This is an honest question, not a statement. It's a wonderful, daunting, inspiring, confusing time of possibilities and pitfalls.
Love to read some thoughts on this, in light of Apple's news. Many thanks.
