DWRITE_RENDERING_MODE enumerations

Starting in Windows 8, the DWRITE_RENDERING_MODE enumeration added new enumeration values and deprecated others.

Starting in Windows 8, the DWRITE_TEXT_ANTIALIAS_MODE enumeration determines whether text is rendered using ClearType. As a result, all the ClearType rendering modes in the DWRITE_RENDERING_MODE enumeration are deprecated. These enumeration values now map to new rendering modes.

The table here shows the old enumeration values and the new values they are mapped to. For descriptions of the new values, see DWRITE_RENDERING_MODE.
