Please, can you put 4.7.3 and 5.0.1 one against other and compare?

Below is the Kate version information:
KDE Frameworks 5.25.0
Qt 5.6.1 (built against 5.6.1)
The xcb windowing system

If I open the same source in this Kate and kdevelop 4.7.3 the line spacing is 
exactly the same. Strange, I expected it to be the same as in 5.0.1!

I am very weak in the GUI internals. Just from some other parameters I know 
that line spacing IN GENERAL is tunable...
