Survex 1.4.3 is now available:

The most notable change in this version is probably the improved support
for HiDPI monitors.  Please report any remaining HiDPI issues you have.

Here's the full NEWS file entry for this release:

Changes in 1.4.3 (2022-05-17):

* aven: Much improved support for HiDPI monitors on all platforms.

* aven: When started without a file make sure the window has focus so menu
  accelerators and shortcuts work without clicking on the window.

* aven,survexport: DXF export now puts splays in a separate layer and uses a
  dotted linetype for them.  Patch from echarlie, see #60.

* Improved survexport man page to include command line options and a short
  note about DXF export.  Patch from echarlie.

* Minor translation updates.

* (Unix version): aven: Fix handling of EGL-based wxGLCanvas (which wxGTK 3.1.5
  has).  Fix a build failure and don't force X11 (as the EGL-based wxGLCanvas
  works on Wayland).

* (MacOS version): aven: Fix hang on startup without a file.  Fixes #120,
  reported by Enrico Fratnik.

* (Microsoft Windows version): Now using wxWidgets 3.1.6 (was 3.0.5).

* img library: Support reproducible builds which create .3d files by not
  embedding a timestamp if environment variable SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH is set.
