GNOME Mutter 3.13.2 Brings HiDPI Support On Wayland

GNOME 3.10 brought initial work on HiDPI support -- displays with very high pixel densities -- and that support improved greatly with GNOME 3.12. Most of that work up to now has been about supporting HiDPI displays under the X.Org Server, but now for GNOME 3.14 there's basic HiDPI support for Mutter on Wayland.

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.
