The Retina display problem is already known and there are two bugs in
our Bugtracker for this:

Bug 682178-Offscreen windows render into low-resolution pixel space [1],
Bug 686454-Gimp Canvas Content Looks Distorted and Pixelated on Macbook
Pro Retina [2].

The current state of development as I heard on IRC: one developer
already made bugfixes but found nobody with a Retina display to
test it. Perhaps we can create a new temporary development branch
in our Git repository for these bugfixes, get an OS X build from it
and somebody with a Retina display is willing to test (perhaps you?).

No problem, provided that 1) my "GIMP on OS X" installation, from the
distribution built by Simone Karin Lehman is not affected, i.e. if I can
install this
test executable in a directory different from /Applications; and 2) my
scripts, fonts, plugins, ... under ~/Library/Application
Support/GIMP/2.8/ are not
affected.  OK, I could backup the whole stuff, but...  And, well, in about
days I am planning to leave from home for a short trip in camping car wit
limited/no web access...
