  • List of changes since Clutter 1.17.4

    - Use libinput instead of libevdev
    The evdev input backend is now based on libinput instead of directly
    using the evdev API; this allows for shared input behaviour with
    different toolkits.

    - Improvements in the X11 input handling
    Remove the chance of input devices going out of sync; avoid excessive
    round trips when asking for the client pointer; retrieve the text
    direction for the current keymap.

    - Improve RTL handling in ClutterText
    Try to use the correct text direction based on the contents, keymap,
    and actor's direction instead of just the latter.

    - Translation updates
    Brazilian Portuguese, Lithuanian, Czech, Hungarian, Serbian, Polish,
