  • List of changes since Clutter 1.26.0

    - Accept upper case 'A' when selecting all content in a Text actor
    This is similar to what GTK+ allows, and makes it easier to select text
    with Caps Lock enabled.

    - Use GDK API when using Wayland sub-surfaces
    The GDK backend on Wayland uses sub-surfaces to allow Cogl to manage the
    rendering surface; now that GDK exposes the necessary API, we can avoid
    using the Wayland API directly, and instead let GDK manage the surface
    for us.

    - Documentation fixes

    - Translation updates
    Danish, Basque, Chinese (Traditional), Occitan, Indonesian, Polish,
    Spanish, Slovak, Kazakh, British English, Croatian, Hungarian, Norwegian
    bokmål, Belarusian.
