Clutter is a library for creating compelling, dynamic and portable graphical
user interfaces. Clutter is released under the terms of the GNU Lesser
General Public License, version 2.1 or (at your option) later.

Clutter depends on:
  GLib ≥ 2.26.0
  JSON-GLib ≥ 0.12.0
  Cairo ≥ 1.10
  Pango ≥ 1.20
  Atk ≥ 1.17
  OpenGL ≥ 1.3 (or 1.2 + multi-texturing), OpenGL|ES 1.1 or 2.0
  GLX, WGL, Quartz, or an EGL implementation

Clutter also has platform-specific dependencies; for more information, see
the README file included in the release.


Release Notes:
  - This is an unstable snapshot of Clutter; there are no compatibility
    guarantees for API added during a development cycle.
  - We have entered the "slushy API" period: API that has been added
    during the current development cycle should be considered basically
    frozen, unless major issues arise between this release and the first
    1.8 release.
  - 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:

    - Reload the font caches on X11 when the user installs a new font
    Whenever the user installs a new font inside one of the directories that
    ware being watched by a session daemon, or changes the fontconfig
    configuration, the toolkits using FontConfig (either directly or indirectly
    e.g. through Pango, like Clutter) should listen to the Fontconfig/Timestamp
    XSETTINGS key and release all the font configuration caches. This allows
    selecting the newly installed fonts without requiring the user to restart
    the application.

    - Allow using "font-description" as a ClutterScript alias for "font-name"
    ClutterText:font-description allows passing a PangoFontDescription
    directly to a ClutterText; when defining a ClutterText instance inside a
    ClutterScript file, :font-description should be an alias for :font-name,
    which takes a string and converts it to a PangoFontDescription.

    - Make sure that LayoutManager subclasses take the allocation origin
      into account when allocating the children
    A LayoutManager should be resilient against allocations with an origin
    not positioned at (0, 0); this allows actors using a layout manager
    instance to munge the box and implement things like margin and padding
    without the layout manager having knowledge of those concepts.

    - Build fixes
    Always link against libm when building Clutter (and its tests); don't
    rely on libraries lower on the stack to do so.
