  • List of changes since Clutter 1.13.4

    - Perform the picking in a separate buffer
    By using a separate buffer we can maintain the back buffer in a stable
    state, and recycle its contents when doing clipped redraws; this should
    improve performance and reduce tearing.

    - Add experimental API for changing the draw timing
    This API can be used to delay the next frame to a specific point in time,
    instead of immediately.

    - Always request XInput 2.3 on the X11 backend
    If XInput is available, we should request the latest version.

    - Translation updates
    Serbian, Brazilian Portuguese, Uyghur, Lithuanian, Italian, French,
    Polish, Galician.
