Icon resolutions

I noticed today that IntelliJ now supports SVG icons as well as the standard and x2 options. Konstantin Bulenkov's post about IconLoader (http://bulenkov.com/iconloader) doesn't mention these, I guess it predates them.

What is recommended for icons now? Should I create a low-res (16x16 for things like node icons) PNG for low-res screens, and then just supply an SVG instead of a x2 version for all the various flavours of higher-res screens?

SVG support is experimental so far and is off by default. So please rely on PNG icons until SVG support is announced officially.
