    I thought Wayland isn't limited to desktop use cases or any particular monitor sizes.

      Yes, both Qt and KDE support fractional scaling for quite a while and it works as expected. At least when using Xorg.

      This is different to GNOME, where fractional scaling is being worked on but missed to be included in the latest release.

        And KDE's fractional scaling on Xorg applies to all displays, so if you combine a 2160p monitor and a 1080p monitor it will scale both.

          Unfortunately, the scaling is still a issue. Look at gnome with their experimental fractional scaling on wayland... while it works, it has alot of app scaling and icon pixelation problems.

            About Fractional Scaling:
            It works if you manually set another font dpi, which scales the UI as well. Then you’ll need to change the icon sizes too. It’s not optimal, but it *really* works. (Tested only under X.org but this is another approach than the scale option in the monitor settings.)

              I agree about scaling and HiDPI displays, but I don't think AppImage's should be made executable automatically, that's a big security risk....
              I don't know what security risk are you talking about.
              When I double-click on a .appimage program it's clear that I want to open it.
              Why should I waste more time with another round of clicks to make it executable and they open it again?
