    No, I can confirm that it hasn't been fixed. Use the same method -

    defaults -currentHost write -globalDomain AppleFontSmoothing -int 2 
    It's a bit of a shame really.

    It's a shame !

    Same issue for me !

    Just bought a new mac mini core i5 with the Radeon graphic chip (to replace my 2 years old mac mini C2D and nvidia 9400 chip).

    Connected on the same LCD, a dell U2410 (with the same input : display port), i immediately noticed that the rendering of the fonts in Safari was awful compared to what it was before (and compared to what i have with my MBP Pro C2D connected on the same LCD).

    So, where's the problem ? OS X Lion or the RADEON chip ?
