    Default Using high res QIcons for OSX with retina display

    I have an application that i want to make use high res icons on the new Macbooks with retina display.

    Making qt use high res fonts can be done by adding the following
    Qt Code:
    1. <key>NSHighResolutionCapable</key>
    2. <true/>
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 
    to the application bundle's Info.plist file.


    But how do get highres images ?
    I'm using Qt 4.7.4 buildt with gcc for the MacOSX10.6.sdk

    Even if i add really high res icons (double resolution) Qt seems to scale them down similarly to how it would if on a non-retina display.
    Are there any flags i need to set? Or is this not yet availiable through Qt ?

    Hi, short story is we're working on it.

    If you want to be a tester you can apply these changes which should fix the tool button case:
