Will Coolorus support Retina Displays?

Coolorus from the beginning was supporting Retina Displays even when they have not been released yet.Unfortunately Adobe untill version CC hasn't support retina flash panels, so that's the reason you can't have your favourite color wheel on CS6 (with retina display) and lover. Only fix is upgrading to CC. There aren't any limitations in Mac version of Coolorus.
