It was implemented in JetBrains Runtime a year ago and was ported & refactored for this PR
It includes:
- Bitmap glyph loading via Freetype
- Manual scaling & transformation of bitmap glyphs with nearest-neighbor or bilinear-mipmap style algorithms depending on the text antialiasing hint
- Storing BGRA glyphs in glyph cache & rendering them as plain images, as currently used XRender text drawing functions doesn't support colored glyphs
- Small fixes in related code like null-checks which could cause NPE & comment typos
