Xft Antialiased Font Support Now Available in Linux

"I've installed the RPMs on my RH8 system, and pages look simply beautiful now. Even the browser menus and widgets are antialiased. I've put up a screen shot here: http://vocaro.com/antialiased-mozilla.png."

More experimental Xft builds are available from komodo.mozilla.org. Xft support is not currently enabled in the default Linux builds.

Has anyone noticed that the Xft-enabled builds of Mozilla do not show the application icon on the window manager/taskbar ?

Was completely enamoured by the much-improved font display I did not notice this until a few minutes ago...
