Subject Re: Changes the default tree's icons with new icons set ready to HiDPI
Date Sat, 05 Mar 2016 14:04:15 GMT
Hello,

I've just commit the pseudo-hidpi changes in the trunk. With this 
changes, a new icon set was bring inside.

First, for the nostalgic people, you can return to old tree's icons with 
the property:
jmeter.icons=org/apache/jmeter/images/icon_old.properties

Second, this new icons was selected on the Open Icon Library, if an new 
icon is not the good icon for a element, you can find/purpose a new icon 
from this library.

This new set changes the look of JMeter, and justify more the 2.x -> 3.x 
version name (IMHO)

The HiDPI changes are mainly for the Linux/Windows people with high 
resolution like 3200x1800.

You can enable the pseudo-hidpi display with theses values (in your 
user.properties)

jmeter.toolbar.icons.size=48x48
jmeter.tree.icons.size=32x32
jmeter.hidpi.mode=true
jmeter.hidpi.scale.factor=2.0
jsyntaxtextarea.font.size=28

@me Note for later: Don't forget to mention this mode in the New and 
Noteworthy section in changes.xml
