That statement is too sweeping to be useful in a bug report.

The observations which mrvanes brought up have been sorted, and the
additional aspects added by you do not stand on their own. I think you
need to explain more precisely the nature of the issues you see.

I would suggest that you pick one application, submit a bug against that
application (probably upstream), and show in considerable detail how the
current rendering of a specific font in that application differs from
what you would expect. Doing so might help to narrow down the problem.

  Font hinting broken on 23.04

Status in fonts-ubuntu package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Just upgraded my laptops to Kubuntu 23.04 Lunar Lobster and hinting
  for all non-commercial fonts seems broken. I used to have decent if
  not perfect hinting on Ubuntu and Ubuntu Mono font, but now the only
  fonts that still hint correctly are Microsoft's Verdana and Tahoma
  etc. Not sure whether the devide is exactly along this line, but it
  stands out.

  Tried regenerating font cache (fc-cache -rv) but that didn't help.
