@mray can you also change it back to the lighter weight italics font? With the current situation, italics (and, to a lesser extent, bold+italics) are hard to notice.
I did not change the weight, but turned down the opacity a bit. It works good enough in my eyes. I also gave feedback to the developers about italics being relatively hard to spot.
I’m okay with the workaround, just note that italic looks distinct, but bold italic seems a little strangely faded. That said, I’m okay with it (and bold-italic use is rare).
