It's actually the same font but drawn with a different technique. The new
technique is much faster, so you can have many more labels interactively
displayed, and works on more graphics cards. With the new technique,
labels are roughly the same size as before in the middle of the scene,
smaller in the back and larger in the front. In some cases of extreme
depth, you can see pixelation in the labels in the front. You can change
the size and type of font in the Background preferences.
The short answer is no. But it would be possible to add the old technique
back if really needed. The way labels are positioned is very different
between the two techniques, so an abstraction layer would be needed, but
it is not hard to do, just questionable if it is worth it or not.
Please email why you want the old technique back and maybe I can fix the
new technique to address your concerns.
