Even if the high dpi option is set to true, the icons is not scaled or resized. They are too tiny to work with (4K resolution on laptop). And when I configure the bigger font-sites (eg. 32), the properties window with the categories is messed up.

Hope you will prioritize the UI for high resolution displays.

The competitor is taking this serious:

I think it's time for NetBeans to do this too.

Cool, but this info is for the Netbeans developers, right? I can't just install a new JRE and get it to work?

I have the same issue under Linux with a 3200x1800 screen.  It is unusable even with GTK+3.  Eclipse work well. After 8 years of using Netbeans, It would be a pity having to switch to Eclipse.
All the information provided indicates that everybody thinks that the problem will be solved by the evolution of platforms like JDK 9 not by addressing the issue within Netbeans.  
High resolution screens are here to stay.
