Does anyone have an idea what this means at the coding level for this latest OS? TeXShop developers: is TeXShop using “sub pixel rendering”?

As a side note, the TeX Preview window (I'm quite sure it also uses PDFKit) looks horrendous too.

Also, Monaco is unusable in BBEdit 11 but looks fine as the Source Window font in TeXShop.

Good Luck,
