  • List of changes since Clutter 1.9.8

    - Provide symbolic names for pointer buttons
    The primary, middle, and secondary pointer buttons now have simple and
    easy to remember constants that can be used in place of the "magic"

    - Add ClutterActorIter
    A simple API, using a stack allocated opaque structure, for safely and
    efficiently traverse the children of a ClutterActor.

    - Fix regression introduced by the default FixedLayout layout manager
    Existing ClutterActor subclasses using their own layout management should
    now work exactly like in Clutter 1.8.

    - Documentation fixes
    Including introspection annotations fixes.

    - Updates to the Wayland backend
    The Wayland client backend is now up to date with the 0.85 release of
