Bug report #10554
text annotations fails to apply anti-aliasing font when rendered on canvas

Text strings rendered within a Text Annotation on the main canvas are not anti-aliased, resulting in a visually displeasing annotation. The anti-aliasing is applied when maps are exported via the Composer. See attached screenshot to see the difference between the rendering on the qgis main canvas, and an exported map @ 90dpi (which normally should look the same as the main canvas).
It's easy to see this issue by increasing the Text Annotation's font size to a large value.
