  • List of changes since Clutter 1.16:

    - See the previous announcements:

    - Improvements in the GestureAction class
    We now allow external subclasses and 3rd party code to override the trigger
    edge and threshold; this allows improved composition of gestures on the same
    actor, as well as out-of-tree GestureAction implementations.

    - Improvements in the evdev input backend and EGL windowing backend
    New API has been added for writing Wayland compositors.

    - Automatic window scaling on high DPI density displays
    If your session detects your hi-dpi display, Clutter will
automatically scale
    the windowing system resources to improve the visual result.

    - Improved RTL language support in ClutterText
    The Text actor detects the direction of its contents and draws the text
    and cursor at the proper position.

  • List of changes since Clutter 1.17.6

    - Update build environment for Visual Studio

    - Improve the API for implementing Wayland compositors
    Allow integrating with logind and KMS; provide clipped redraws on both
    Wayland clients, and direct KMS.

    - Port the documentation to MarkDown

    - Use symbol annotations to ensure the public ABI

    - Translations updates
    Korean, Traditional Chinese (Hong Kong and Taiwan), Chinese, Portuguese,
    Latvian, Russian, French.
