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 ≥ 2.31.0
  JSON-GLib ≥ 0.12.0
  Cogl ≥ 1.9.4
  Cairo ≥ 1.10
  Pango ≥ 1.20
  Atk ≥ 2.1.5

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 1.9.4

    - Deprecate clutter_actor_show_all() and clutter_actor_hide_all()
    The latter never did make a lot of sense: hiding the parent will
    effectively hide the children as well; the former was there only for
    convenience, but Actors are visible by default.

    - Gracefully handle existing code
    The changes in ClutterActor introduced regressions in existing code
    because of the new functionaly that was introduced to replace deprecated
    classes like Box and Group. These regressions have hopefully been fixed;
    Clutter 1.9.6 has been tested with a project as complex as the GNOME

    - Fix build with binutils-gold
    The private dependencies were not used when building Clutter, and this
    made the Gold linker angry.

    - Allow tracking of an actor's first and last child
    ClutterActor has two new properties, :first-child and :last-child; these
    are read-only properties that can be used by toolkits based on Clutter
    to track the first and last child whenever they change.

    - Bump the Cogl dependency
    The 1.9.4 release depended on Cogl ≥ 1.9.4, but the minimum required
    version was not bumped along with the changes.

    #668137 - FTBFS: pangoft2 check seems to be broken

Have fun with Clutter!
