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.
  - 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:

  • List of changes since Clutter 1.7.4

    - Accessibility fixes in Cally
    Fix the implementation of the AtkText interface for ClutterText.

    - Depend on the new Cogl windowing system API.

    - Add functions for retrieving the clip boundaries on the Stage
    The clutter_stage_get_redraw_clip_bounds() function is useful for
    window managers (like Mutter) that need to retrieve the clipped
    region used on the Stage.

    - Auto-detect the default flavour when building
    The default flavour used when building should be set depending
    on the platform.

    - Mark the OSX backend as non-experimental
    The OSX backend is being developed, and maintained, so it should
    not be considered experimental.

    - Make sure that Gestures are cancelled when missing release events

    - Correct the rounding for paint volumes
    Try to provide stable results against potential floating point rounding
    margins when projecting 3D paint volumes into screen bounding boxes;
    this should avoid re-creating FBOs and always correctly handle clipped

    - Do not clobber XI2 events data
    This allows to play along with other toolkits using XI2.

    - Fix ClutterSnapConstraint's right edge snapping

    - Deprecations
    ClutterScore, clutter_texture_new_from_actor(),
