    - Improve the evdev input backend
    The evdev input backend is used when writing applications and compositors
    that directly drive the frame buffer on Linux. By ensuring that the evdev
    input backend works correctly it is possible to manage input sources like
    pointers, keyboards, and touch devices using the raw evdev device nodes.
    Clutter now depends on libevdev in order to poll the evdev interfaces.

    - Allow scaling windowing surfaces
    The main part of the work to support high resolution displays is to make
    sure that windowing surfaces can be created with a scaling factor, while
    trasparently handling the new size from an application's perspective. The
    scaling factor is currently set manually, but it in the near future it will
    be automatically set by the environment.

    - Translation updates
    Serbian, Aragonese, Russian, Latvian, Belarusian, Assamese, Indonesian,
    German, Hebrew.
