Today's release of Mutter 3.17.92 has an important change for HiDPI users in time for GNOME 3.18.

The Mutter 3.17.92 release has a fix so it now scales cursors appropriately on HiDPI displays. It's in reference to this bug since near the beginning of the year about the cursor size not scaling for HiDPI screens. Patches had been floating around for months while finally this month that lengthy bug report is getting closed up.

Mutter 3.17.92 also has other changes including fixes, finding the right DRM device, etc. The HiDPI cursor fix though seems to be the most important.
