  • List of changes since Clutter 1.8.0

    - Plug memory leaks in ClutterBoxLayout
    The list of children retrieved from the container was not being freed
    in each size negotiation cycle.

    - Fix the handling of out-of-stage actors in OffscreenEffect
    The expansion of the viewport needed for out-of-stage actors when
    computing the size and position of the offscreen buffer was failing
    with nested effects.

    - Do not complete a PaintVolume multiple times
    A missing guard was causing the lazily computed vertices of the cube
    to be trampled over; this caused visual artefacts as the stage-relative
    bounding box became unstable, leading to the wrong clip region to be
    used when painting.

    - Update the MingW cross-compilation script

    - Updated translations
    Danish, Brazilian, Serbian, Punjabi, Telugu, Assamese, German, Oriya,
    Esperanto, Tamil, Portuguese, Ukrainian, Traditional Chinese (Hong
    Kong and Taiwan), Catalan, French.
