Apple has updated its support document on using 4K displays and UltraHD TVs with your MacBook Pro (Retina, Late 2013) or Mac Pro (Late 2013) computer.

With your built-in HDMI port you can use 4K displays at the following resolutions and refresh rates:
● 3840 x 2160 at 30 Hz refresh rate
● 4096 x 2160 at 24 Hz refresh rate (mirroring is not supported at this resolution)

With OS X Mavericks v10.9.3 or later, the following DisplayPort displays are supported at their default 30 Hz using single-stream transport (SST).
● Sharp PN-K321
● ASUS PQ321Q
● Dell UP2414Q
● Dell UP3214Q
● Panasonic TC-L65WT600

MacBook Pro (Retina, Late 2013) or Mac Pro (Late 2013) also support 60 Hz displays using multi-stream transport (MST). These displays need to be manually configured to use MST. Follow the steps below to use the display's built-in controls to enable this feature.
● Sharp PN-K321: Choose Menu > Setup > DisplayPort STREAM > MST > SET
● ASUS PQ321Q: Choose OSD menu > Setup > DisplayPort Stream
● Dell UP2414Q and UP3214Q: Choose Menu > Display Setting > DisplayPort 1.2 > Enable
● Panasonic TC-L65WT600: Choose Menu > Display Port Settings > Steam Setting > Auto

Your Mac will automatically detect an MST-enabled display. However, your display may require a firmware update to support 60Hz operation.

Adjusting your display
Use System Preferences > Displays to adjust or scale the resolution on your display. This can make text and objects appear larger or give you more space on your screen.

It's like warning us what has changed because some may stay at the current version before updating.
