Re: [Pharo-users] Pharo 5 and retina displays in 2016?

Tim Mackinnon
Adding this to the Dev user group - is there really no solution for this? I read a few old messages from 2012 about different fonts but nothing seemed to work from what I could see.

Has everyone just been putting up with the fuzziness and got used to it? As a new Retina display user, I love the clarity in other apps and find it quite jarring in Pharo. I was going to do a brown bag session on Smalltalk with the current team I’m working with, however as they all have retina Macs, I think I may reconsider this as unless you love the language its another thing for people to throw stones at.

As Stephan mentions below, were Tobias’ changes not viable? Is there anything we can do to help get them safely in - or can I try it on an experimental branch?

The majority of Pharo developers are on macOS, most of them with Retina screens. I know that we do have some problems in that area, but I personally consider the current situation acceptable.

This is always tricky.

If I take a full screen screen shot on my MacBook Pro Retina 13-inch, I get a PNG 2560x1600 144 pixels/inch.

The screenshot that I posted earlier was a partial one, a PNG of 1796x1256 144 pixels/inch.

What I see here, http://forum.world.st/attachment/4925242/0/Screen%20Shot%202016-11-30%20at%2011.32.53.png seems to be what I posted.

On a non-retina screen it probably looks way too big.

Thanks. Upon investigation, it was my Thunderbird email client that led
me astray -- what it claimed was full size was nowhere near full size.
Following your link or saving the image in the email and viewing it with
a proper image viewer give better results.

Looking at the full-size image, it is quite obvious that it's been
scaled up from a lower-resolution image, and I can see how those with
sharp vision would find it to be distressingly blurry on a retina display.

-Martin

Maybe, but the thing is, you are looking at it half size, in some sense, when it is on a Retina display. Anyway, to me, it is OK, but my eyes are no longer what they used to be. I can imagine young people being more sensitive to it.

Re: [Pharo-users] Pharo 5 and retina displays in 2016?

It could be I don't have something obvious setup correctly - but I notice a marked difference between the text in my email client which is super crisp and then when I excitedly loaded up a new Pharo5 on the new laptop and discovered it markedly fuzzy. Enough so that it got me searching for solutions for it

I should try taking side by side screenshots though - as maybe someone might spot my mistake or maybe it might convince me that I'm imagining it (it's a new laptop that I'm just getting used to).

Nah, it just is blurry. I've played a bit with krono's vm, and it is
a very noticable difference. Much better readable and less tiring.
And you mostly only notice when trying to go back from HiDPI to low.

OK then. Why was this change no merged then ?
Maybe it is a lot slower ?
Is this VM available somewhere ?

It was reverted, as that vm had more stability problems.

That is very general ;-)

From a distance (not knowing anything about it), it seems that HDi support was considered not important. Else more people would work on it to fix its teething problems, no ?

Is there anything in the VM code beyond having to move more pixels around for the the bit blitting?

macOS VM has the display split into zones and updates as needed. Of course, there are more bits to bang to the display but is this a reason for not having that working?

I have no retina display, so cannot even try this out.

No, it was consider very important, second only to spur (64).

To give people a better view of this - here is the Pharo image next to the mail client (I’m not sure if the screen captures really do it justice as when you scale them down in a picture everything looks fine - however if I zoom into that bottom corner in a second image it might make it more obvious).

I think this has been a problem brewing for a while, but if most contributors don’t have retina screens (although they are getting much more common now) then I guess it goes unnoticed. I suspect in the next few years, as people start replacing machines - it will gain more visibility.

I find it quite distracting when switching from mail or other apps to Pharo and then you notice the fuzziness. Maybe if you spend a few hours in the code you might adjust.

The following is the bottom corner zoom in to show what I mean by fuzzy:

Yes I noticed the difference but for me its ok. I dont have a retina display though I am mostly a imac/ipad mid user but even if I did , it would be a low priority for me to fix. I rather have pharo developers focus on bootstraping the pharo image than this.

That is nice, and a different solution. The needed changes were
very limited, stability problems might have been resulting from
gc during bitblit.

Pharo 5 and retina displays in 2017?

Tim Mackinnon
I mentioned this last year - and I’m wondering if there is any news or developments on making Pharo look better on higher end hardware like Macbook’s and Dell’s?

I keep dipping into Pharo but every time I see the blurry screen, it just takes away the shine for me (which is a bit sad)?

Is Bloc getting much traction?

To give people a better view of this - here is the Pharo image next to the mail client (I’m not sure if the screen captures really do it justice as when you scale them down in a picture everything looks fine - however if I zoom into that bottom corner in a second image it might make it more obvious).

I think this has been a problem brewing for a while, but if most contributors don’t have retina screens (although they are getting much more common now) then I guess it goes unnoticed. I suspect in the next few years, as people start replacing machines - it will gain more visibility.

I find it quite distracting when switching from mail or other apps to Pharo and then you notice the fuzziness. Maybe if you spend a few hours in the code you might adjust.

The following is the bottom corner zoom in to show what I mean by fuzzy:

Maybe, but the thing is, you are looking at it half size, in some

Nah, it just is blurry. I've played a bit with krono's vm, and it is
a very noticable difference. Much better readable and less tiring.
And you mostly only notice when trying to go back from HiDPI to low.
