  • List of changes since Clutter 1.10

    - Add ClutterScrollActor
    An actor that can display a portion of its children, as well as
    transitioning between visible regions.

    - Make clutter_actor_allocate() respect the easing state of the actor
    This allows animating allocations in layout managers.

    - Add automatic expansion flags for ClutterActor
    Actors can be marked to by allocated extra space by their parent, or
    by the layout manager used by their parent; the expansion flags are also
    recursive, so they can be set on a leaf node of the actor tree, and
    propagate further up automatically.

    - Add ClutterTransitionGroup and ClutterKeyframeTransition
    Two ClutterTransition implementation that allow creating complex

    - Provide more C convenience API to ClutterTransition
    Instead of dealing with ClutterInterval instances, it's possible to
    define the starting and final values of a transition.

    - Provide base geometric types: point, size, rectangle
    Along with commodity API.

    - New round of deprecations
    ClutterMedia, ClutterCairoTexture, clutter_actor_animate(),
    ClutterAnimation, ClutterAnimator, ClutterState, ClutterLayoutManager's
    animation API.

    - Return a valid default PaintVolume in more cases
    For actors not overriding paint() or get_paint_volume() we can already
    infer enough information on the area thatis going to be painted, and return
    a valid paint volume. We specifically ignore any painting going on inside
    a ClutterActor::paint signal handler, as that is considered legacy and on
    its way to deprecation. People overriding the paint sequence of an actor
    from within a paint signal handler, and painting outside the allocation,
    are evil anyway.

    - Depend on Pango 1.30

    - Report distance as an axis on X11 with XInput 2 support enabled
    Proximity information with XInput 2+ is reported as axis data on devices
    with valuator classes.

    - Documentation fixes
