Since you're asking if installing a "more recent version" would help, it
might be useful to actually tell us what version you're running.  But my
guess is that you're using 4.0.x, which does not have font rendering
options support.  Note the URL you posted: "docs-4.2".

FYI: this is a question for the user list, not the dev list.

FYI^2: please use a sane mailer that wraps message text at something <80
characters (72 is preferred).
