Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] How to provide HDPI icons in your plug-in

it would mean that the IDE would have to "render" SVG to bitmaps at runtime (whereas we currently do it at dev-time). Given the number of icons in Eclipse IDE, there are risks that this consume a lot of CPU (in the UI Thread moreover...) and creates lags.
But it's just a guess, I'm not aware of any actual experiment of theorical metrics about the impact of displaying SVGs in Eclipse.
