There are only a handful of commits to Plymouth each year while Thursday was one of the more interesting commit days. Thanks to developer Giovanni Campagna, Plymouth is receiving HiDPI enhancements.
Plymouth now supports the concept of device scales modeled after the Cairo API and designed for HiDPI monitor support. Following that were other HiDPI-specific adjustments and setting the scale for the DRM back-end on relevant displays. There is also support with the Plymouth X11 renderer for testing out this HiDPI scaling support.
