GNOME's Mutter On Wayland Gets HiDPI Support
With the GNOME 3.12 release, GNOME is one of the Linux desktop environments to best support HiDPI displays such as what's found on the Retina MacBook Pro, the ASUS Zenbook, and other laptops/ultrabooks and monitors. This HiDPI support has been under an X11/X.Org-based environment, but now there's similar treatment under Wayland.
Committed on Friday night to GNOME's Mutter was basic HiDPI support on Wayland and Wayland support for scaling native surfaces for HiDPI.
This initial Wayland HiDPI support for GNOME's Mutter plus other Wayland improvements will be part of GNOME 3.14 that should officially arrive in late September while the GNOME 3.13 test releases have already begun.
