Re: [gtk-osx-users] Support of Older OS X Versions

John, Christoph,
thanks for updates regarding current gtk+ status. John, did you build gtk+3 with patches provided by Christoph or without them? I will try to build recent version once again and see how it looks. Hopefully it will be more useful than before.

Which is backporting changes from 3.18 into 3.16, so it would seem that something *has* been done so far. In addition to "Retina" look for "HiDPI", which is what it's called in the non-Mac world.

FWIW I built Bluefish yesterday against gtk+ master and it looked OK on my 2560x1920 monitor except that it hasn't been modified for the Adwaita theme so most of the toolbar icons were missing. That's the same resolution as a Retina MBP though it's a 27" monitor so only ~120 dpi. I'm not sure if that would make pixellation more or less obvious.
