Text looks funny

I have been using 3.2 for a while and updated from SVN for the first time in a few months, as part of changing my project to Ogre 1.8. All works fine but text looks different in MyGUI - it seems wider and not as nice.

I remember reading about quite big changes regarding fonts, is this the result? Or have default fonts simply changed or something and I need to update my MyGUI scripts?

I can post a comparison before/after if it's helpful.

Yes, this is part of our changes.
You should open FontViewer and play with Hinting option. Also it is recommended to update freetype to 2.4.8+, since they made some important changes with hinting.
