Mutter, a window and compositing manager that displays and manages your desktop via OpenGL, has reached version 3.7.90.

Owen Taylor has announced that Mutter 3.7.90 was released, repairing a few problems and updating a couple of features.

Highlights of Mutter 3.7.90:

• Support for a wrapper, for the XI2.3 pointer, has been added;
• The style of resize popups has been updated;
• Compositor <-> application frame synchronization has been implemented;
• Animated backgrounds are now working;
• Show correct shortcut in window menus.

Although it can be used stand-alone, it is primarily intended to be used as the display core of a larger system, such as GNOME Shell. It can be enhanced by plug-ins and it's utilized in conjuncture with GNOME Shell.
