That's probably because DPI was forced. Most displays are something other
than 96, though some are close. If you force DPI to be accurate at each
install, then you'll be more likely unbothered or less bothered by font size
changing from release to release.
In F15 what may be bothering you is a change of system font family. The
problem is that physical size and nominal size are not consistent among font
families, meaning that F15 left the default nominal size untouched, but
changed the family to one of different (smaller) physical size. Your fix in
the current case may be as simple as choosing the same font family as last
used, unless what you have now is actually what you prefer.
If your display's actual DPI is less than 96, it's best to leave it
inaccurate (pinned to 96). Many apps and web pages get pretty ugly when DPI
is not 96, but the impact is worst when less than 96.
