Default Reaper + Retina 2018 status update?

Hi everyone,
I cannot find any info about improving default theme for Reaper to catch up with Retina/HIDPI displays. I remember that 1 user has been working on Retina-compliant theme but it's wasn't finished back then. Does Reaper still looks like crap on MacBook Pro or am I outdated ?

Unfortunately, there hasn't been any update to the default theme yet, but I have a 2x scaled theme that's modded from a mod (possibly from another mod) of the default v4 theme.

And Default Commala 5 has been done for Retina too.

The Reaper's graphics in Mac OS is still a weakness. Especially with plugins made on JUCE framework. Thinking about bootcamped my MBP 2017 for Reaper

So, it basically came from framework? Because all plugins that cause low fps use JUCE framework (voxengo, cableguys, cytomic, etc.). But developers with their own framework (fabfilter, dmg audio, uad, etc.) runs much better in terms of video performance.
