High-resolution icons for tabs - Retina display

I'm trying to add high-resolution artwork to my application so it displays clearly on my iPhone 4, however even though I've added the corresponding high-resolution version of the image, forums@2x.png, it's not picking it up and using it on either the iPhone 4 itself or the simulator.

My code is as follows:

var forumsTab = Titanium.UI.createTab({  

I'm using SDK version 1.4.0, and I can't figure out why it won't use the high-resolution icons.

    • Doing that just makes no icon appear at all on the tab. I believe if you just put forums.png it should automatically use the @2x version on high-res devices, but it isn't doing.

    • The @2x only works with the splash screen and icon, not whats programmability created. You would have to do a platform detection for that to work.
