I see from browsing Themeforest that there are many retina ( HD ready ) themes available; and WordPress itself has retina standard icons for the backend too; but what about the content, both future content and archived content?

There are a couple of plugins available which will sort it out for us, but does this mean that a typical WordPress site will need to carry a retina plugin going forward to work out the serving of the 2x images; or is there a plan for this to be included in the core ... or is it already included ... or is this in the realm of themes to server 2x images?

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

I think this is better to be discussed at make.wordpress.org/ui. I've already seen a couple of plugins having problems with their retina images when running MP6 (basically born from make.wp.ui and already active in WP dot COM). – brasofilo May 22 '13 at 0:34
I wouldn't feel qualified to discuss it though; I was just looking for a yes or no as to whether a plan exists that I haven't found ... or pointer to a discussion maybe, but I take it from your answer that nothing is solid as of yet ... I will have a look on that website and see if anything exists, thanks. – byronyasgur May 22 '13 at 0:52
Well, "discuss" is subjective as well. You're raising good points. Drop a message there and see what happens :) – brasofilo May 22 '13 at 2:36
Thanks ... didn't realise I was being cutting edge ... doing a message there is not really possible for me at this time though ... maybe some other, or maybe someone else wants to take it up, thanks – byronyasgur May 22 '13 at 2:59
