After the update to Plasma 5.7.1 my systray icons have grown and look a bit squeezed into the panel and pixelated.
I'll attach a screenshot.

I also have huge icons with no padding around them (see attached screenshot, compare it to the Reshift Control widget to the left or the clock to the right) since 5.7.1. I assume this is a regression introduced by the fix for issue #364431.

Huge systray icons, no padding

Indeed. If I revert 1ba0e6e5ddd598e9b0cf87a654467f97c06b26c5 (or just edit /usr/share/plasma/plasmoids/org.kde.plasma.private.systemtray/contents/ui/main.qml) systray icons return to an appropriate size.
I also discovered https://git.reviewboard.kde.org/r/128400/ which would make the size configurable (only targeted at master though).

Terrible huge systray icons
Also seeing this on 1080p https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=364431#c13 (my comment with screenshot from the original bug)
This problem should be fixed with this commit: https://quickgit.kde.org/?p=plasma-workspace.git&a=commitdiff&h=7f060403a2d44fc76b2b14fc9ebf43ee272d1c54
Please test it

Refactored: John Salatas's plasma-workspace-5.7.0-systray_iconsize.patch
I don't see how watering down John Salatas's original patch into a secret/ hidden setting - so basically it fixes nothing - achieves anything?? Last time I checked Plasma isn't going after the i3 DE market!!
I remember requesting this feature back in 2014 (!!) on the VDG forums - I was not alone...
If user requests for features are to be ignored... What was the point of the VDG??
I've finally got the feature I wanted - thanks to John Salatas... But not really - because I've got to refactor this patch - every plasma-workspace release now... :-(
Just to add Vertical side panels are still broken - by default - with no "user visible" switch to fix them.
I can confirm this bug. Happened when updating from 5.7.0 to 5.7.1
Guys, do you test stuff before you release?

Refactored for Plasma 5.7.2: John Salatas's plasma-workspace-5.7.0-systray_iconsize.patch
The bug still appears in Plasma 5.7.2.
BTW, Bob Wya's patch works well.
I can not confirm this - after update to 5.7.2 I have the icon size in the systray that I had with versions <= 5.7.0 which I assume to be the correct size. Only version 5.7.1 showed the big icons in the panel for me.
If you're using Fedora, I persuaded rdeiter to patch it at the package level. In which case, you won't see it in Fedora.
I'm on openSUSE and I use the package from the KDE:Frameworks5 repository: https://build.opensuse.org/package/show?project=KDE%3AFrameworks5&package=plasma5-desktop
You have no problem, because OpenSuse has already included the patch into their build: https://build.opensuse.org/package/view_file/KDE:Frameworks5/plasma5-workspace/Configuration-option-for-System-Tray-icon-size.patch?expand=1
So, waiting for this patch to be released in 5.7.3 (it is in master branch in git, but didn't come to 5.7.2).
Still not fixed in 5.7.5 :(
Looking into git, I see that the fix is only merged to 5.7.95/5.8.
In 5.8.0, minimized windows show a black rectangle if the option to keep
thumbnails of hidden windows in memory is disabled. I don't think that's
any more beautiful than pixelated icons. ;-)
