The problem is that the poppler libary itself is hardcoded to use 72 dpi. As long as this remains, PopplerKit must also use this value. However, I have introduced a function PopplerKitDPI() that returns the DPI values to use instead of hardcoding them in the renderers. Once poppler supports variable DPI values, this function can return the real resolution of the output device.

Currently the display resolution is hardcoded to 72dpi which causes documents to appear to small on displays with a bigger resolution. PopplerKit has to determine the resolution at runtime. This could be done by using the device description that is available from the NSScreen.
