Release Notes:
  - This is an unstable snapshot of Clutter; there are no compatibility
    guarantees for API added during a development cycle.
  - This version is API and ABI compatible with the current stable
    release of Clutter.
  - Installing the contents of this release will overwrite the files
    from the installation of the current release of Clutter.
  - Bugs should be reported on the Clutter Bugzilla product, at:
  - This snapshot contains a last minute fix for an annoying bug inside
    Clutter that produced visual artifacts with GNOME Shell.
  - The API for Clutter 1.7 is mostly frozen (or "slushy"): API additions,
    removals or changes are going to be vetted and applied only in
    extraordinary circumstances.

  • List of changes since Clutter 1.7.8

    - Do not update the last paint volume when picking
    Last minute fix for an issue that was most prominently manifesting itself
    when using GNOME Shell with Clutter 1.7; this should resolve the issue
    that dragging icons from the dash left around some stale pixels.

    - Fix building the tests
    The performance and micro-benchmark tests did not pick up changes in
    local dependencies, e.g. under a JHBuild root.
