  • List of changes since Clutter 1.14

    - Wayland backend updates
    Clutter now supports Wayland 1.2; the Wayland backend also has been
    vastly improved, alongside the evdev backend for input, which allows the
    creation of Wayland compositors on top of Clutter.

    - Performance improvements
    Clutter now keeps better track of clones and actor state, and will avoid
    state changes as well as animations on actors that won't be visible or
    be painted.

    - Dropped support for XInput 1.x
    The XInput 1.x extension is largely unsupported by X11; any further
    improvements will go in the XInput 2.x extension support.

    - Initial work to support high DPI density displays
    Improvements for transparently scaling window surfaces on high DPI
    displays will also follow in the near future.

  • List of changes since Clutter 1.15.96

    - Fix a division by zero in the X11 backend

    - Translation updates
    Portuguese, Danish

  • List of bugs fixed since Clutter 1.15.96
