Eclipse on QHD/HiDPI screens finally fixed

If in the past months you had to choose between squinting your eyes with ultra small icons and way to small menus or blurry text when using one of your favourite IDEs than the end is near! Eclipse finally updated to support high resolution displays (like 3200 x 1800 px) and when you update to version 4.6 you can finally use it like on a normal “old fashioned” display with sharp text and normal icons. 🙂

Prior to 4.6 the following website gave a better solution than increasing the editor font size to like 30 which still left the menu too small but ran Eclipse  in a rather blurry mode [https://jaxenter.com/netbeans/hidpi-with-eclipse-and-netbeans] by using a manifest file next to the EXE.

The problem was discussed in this bugtracker: https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=421383
