Clutter is a library for creating compelling, dynamic, and portable graphical
user interfaces. Clutter is released under the terms of the GNU Lesser
General Public License, version 2.1 or (at your option) later.

Clutter depends on:
  GLib ≥ 2.44.0
  JSON-GLib ≥ 0.12.0
  Cogl ≥ 1.21.2
  Cairo ≥ 1.14.0
  Pango ≥ 1.30
  Atk ≥ 2.5.3

Clutter also has platform-specific dependencies; for more information, see
the README file included in the release.


Release Notes:
  - This is an unstable snapshot of Clutter; there are no compatibility
    guarantees for API added during a development cycle.
  - This version is API and ABI compatible with the previous stable
    release of Clutter.
  - Installing the contents of this release will overwrite the files
    from the installation of the previous release of Clutter.
  - Bugs should be reported on the Clutter Bugzilla product, at:

  • List of changes since Clutter 1.24

    - Set event code on button and key events in the evdev input backend
    This allows users of the evdev input backend to retrieve the event
    code without doing ad hoc calculations based on event-specific fields.

    - Take scaling factor into account on Wayland with GDK
    This brings the Wayland support inside the GDK backend on par to the X11

    - Decouple selectability from editability in ClutterText
    It's possible to create selectable ClutterText actors without enabling
    editability; this may cause unexpected cursors to appear in reactive
    label-like actors using non-editable ClutterText, so feedback from users
    is appreciated.

    - Allow overriding the Cogl driver used by Clutter
    On systems with multiple OpenGL and OpenGL ES implementations available,
    it should be possible to explicitly set the Cogl driver (OpenGL 3.2 core
    profile context; OpenGL legacy context; OpenGL ES 2.0 context) used by
    Clutter when creating its drawing context. It's also possible to define
    a list of drivers to try sequentially until one succeeds.

    - Rework the windowing system backend selection
    The windowing system backend initialization has been reworked to allow
    setting the default windowing system backend using the configuration
    file under $XDG_CONFIG_DIRS/clutter-1.0/settings.ini. The selection of
    the backend also supports the ability to specify a list of backends to
    try sequentially until one succeeds, for systems with multiple windowing
    systems available.

    - Documentation fixes

    - Translation updates
