Mar 24, 2017:

I've uploaded long-overdue updates to some of my more popular apps.

The most significant improvement is that these apps should now look much better on high-DPI screens -- 4k displays and displays where the text size is set to something larger than 100%.




More updates will be coming soon..

Would you be so kind to write a (small) essay about what you had to do for implementing the High-DPI feature(s), or point to the documentation on the net on how to achieve that?

Will do.  I think much of it will be specific to C++ Builder (or Delphi), since that's what those apps are made in and it has some specific facilities for handling high-DPI GUI scaling, with some specific required workarounds to get everything working well.
