AW: Why is LC text blurred on a retina display?

Thanks Kay, Neil and Mark,
I can't use LC 7 or above, because the sort international is completely
broken (as I have reported), what makes LC 7 or above completely unusable
for German developers. (because sorting is just such a standard function...)
But I will give 6.7.6 a try. Hoping I don't get any pitfalls with QT on
modern systems, because I can't use AVFoundation.
Thank you
Tiemo

Hi Tiemo,

HiDPI support was added in LiveCode 6.6RC2. You will have to upgrade to at
least this version for text to look crisp although I would highly recommend
starting to use LiveCode 8 ;)

More information on this can be found here-
