How to reach retina support

Hi Tobi

I am not sure what you mean by "Scale all javaFX rendering by factor 2.0". Since JavaFX is primarily vector based, I cannot see why you would do that.

As long as JavaFX prevents Mac OS from switching a JavaFX app to the magnifying mode, I can ensure that my app looks great, as long as I bring fine enough images along with it. ImageView is already able to scale my images, so why do you need more than bullet 1?
