  • List of changes since Clutter 1.11.12

    - Fixes for the touch sequence handling
    The stage associated with an input device is now set when a touch sequence
    begins, and cleared when the last touch sequence ends.

    - Add interpolation for matrices
    Using the CSS3 Transforms specification for decomposing matrices and
    interpolating the resulting transformations. This allows animating
    properties like ClutterActor:transform and ClutterActor:child-transform.

    The PanAction is a gesture recogniser that allows panning children of
    a "scrollable" viewport.

    - Add more accessors to GestureAction for its subclasses
    GestureAction now allows retrieving the velocity and delta of pointer,
    as well as the event sequences and devices involved in the gesture. This
    allows writing more complex gesture recognisers. It is also possible, now,
    to ask a GestureAction to cancel the current gesture programmatically,
    e.g. from a timer.

    - Fix ClutterTableLayout.pack() with negative row/column
    Using a negative number to appen an actor into a TableLayout was causing
    additional rows and columns to be appended, due to an off by one error.

    - Fix press coordinates when using ClutterDragAction with a drag handle
    The transformation of the coordinates is now done using the drag actor,
    as it was supposed to be.

    - Documentation and annotation fixes

    - Deprecate the ClutterActor::pick signal
    Similarly to the ClutterActor::paint signal, it's now discouraged to
    connect to the ClutterActor::pick signal; connecting to the pick signal
    will raise a warning when using the CLUTTER_ENABLE_DIAGNOSTIC environment

    - Updated translations
    Lithuanian, Indonesian, Traditional Chinese (Hong Kong and Taiwan),
    Polish, Spanish, Assamese, Greek, Spanish, Polish, Galician,
