System76 Plans Major HiDPI Update for Their Ubuntu-Based Pop!_OS Linux Distro

The team is ready to deploy one of the biggest updates to Pop!_OS Linux’s HiDPI (High Dots Per Inch) daemon, which should be soon available for all of their customers running Pop!_OS Linux on any of the laptop or desktop computers bought from the computer reseller. The update will add a new and improved layout engine, as well as support for saving resolutions and layouts. In the meantime, System76’s engineers are still working with the elementary OS team on the new installer, reporting that they’ve managed to port the content of the current installer in Pop!_OS Linux to an all-new side-by-side layout that allows for illustrations to be displayed during the installation. These creative illustrations will be made by Kate Hazen, who does a great job on the branded packaging for System76’s computers.
