  • List of changes since Clutter 1.11.4

    - Accessibility fixes
    Clean up key listeners; implement AtkText missing methods for getting text
    before and after a given offset.

    - Ensure that ClutterBinLayout honours the fixed positioning

    - Improvements in GridLayout

    - Improve debugging messages
    We now print out the name, type, and pointer address of each actor when
    emitting debugging messages; also, all messages within one second are
    grouped together and show the delta instead of a full timestamp, to
    improve readability.

    - Add ClutterActor:content-repeat
    The content-repeat property can be used by a ClutterContent implementation
    to control the repeating of the content's data or pattern. ClutterImage
    and ClutterCanvas honour this property.

    - Switch to lcov for test coverage

    - Remove an extra reference on ClutterStage

    - Improve touch event support
    New API to install a grab on a specific event sequence of an input device;
    ClutterText now responds to touch events; ClutterDragAction and
    ClutterDropAction also use touch events as well as pointer events. The
    conformance and interactive test suites now have units for checking touch
    event handling.
