      Is it *real* DPI scaling or just fonts only?

        According to the complete changelog from WineHQ.org, it appears to be font only as the three patches relating to the wineconsole mentions fonts specifically and nothing else:
        Code:
        wineconsole: Try harder to get a scalable font.
        wineconsole: Set a proper default for the font weight.
        wineconsole: Scale font with system DPI.

          Wine 3.18 also includes a number of "winevulkan" updates for the Vulkan support code, including updates against Wine 1.1.86.
          This should say "Vulkan 1.1.86".

            This means Wine is still ugly on my HiDPI display...

            (Windows 10 has the same problem, but at least they got some official "hacks" for HiDPI)
