  • Version set to trunk
.media-sidebar .settings-save-status .spinner {
	background: url(../../wp-admin/images/wpspin_light.gif) no-repeat;

Yeah, we can't do that.

Rawr. Let's copy wpspin_light.gif over to wp-includes/images. And maybe just name it wpspin there, because dark doesn't exist anymore, anyway.

In 23023:

Copy wpspin_light to wp-includes as wpspin.gif. Use it in media views. see #22728.

Can someone verify this on a retina device?

In 23026:

Move HiDPI block to the bottom of media-views. @media does not provide additional specificity, so the non-retina stuff overrides if the retina rules come first. props lessbloat, fixes #22728.

I don't get it. Why is it necessary to copy the image? "wp-includes" and "wp-admin" are in the same level, even in subfolder installs, aren't they? Am I missing something?

We should never be guessing at paths - this bites us every so often. Folders can be moved if so desired, etc.
