I tried QGIS master on Windows 10 (VM running os MacOS) and I noticed that HiDPI displays are not fully supported. There are a lot of objects which doesn't scale according to system preferences. There are: checkboxes, radial buttons, symbols on layers pane, icons on styling pane, vertex during line editing, height of some bars and etc.

I could not see this issue being addressed in the roadmap. Are people keeping track of this? This issue has not being assigned to anyone either. Is the plan to release QGIS 3.0 in 2 days with HiDPI support? Could we have an ETA and assign it this issue to a milestone so that people can prioritise their contributions? The matter of HiDPI display is becoming increasingly important and, on Windows, at least, the QGIS GUI is difficult to navigate at very high resolutions.

Qgis development does not work that. It's an open source project and development is not dictated by a formal list of priorities.
See https://nyalldawson.net/2016/08/how-to-effectively-get-things-changed-in-qgis/ for a summary on ways you can get the desired improvements implemented.
