The development team behind the Clutter software, a library for creating compelling, portable, dynamic and fast graphical user interfaces (GUI), has announced a few days ago that the second maintenance release of the stable Clutter 1.16 branch is available for download.
Clutter 1.16.2 is here to allow developers to create transitions and intervals from ClutterScript. Also, this release implements touch update event throttling, ClutterInterval now implements ClutterScriptable, and the preferred size of TableLayout has been fixed.
Regarding the last fix mentioned above, developers should pay attention to the visibility of the children when they're computing the preferred size of a ClutterActor using a ClutterTableLayout as its layout manager.
Moreover, Clutter 1.16.2 introduces a couple improvements for the Wayland and X11 backends, such as the support for 'cursor-visible' stage property in the Wayland backend, and updated device coordinate handling for the X11 backend, which removes the dependency on the XFixes extension for displaying or hiding the cursor.
The correct opacity is now applied when painting ClutterImage, ClutterDragAction is now able to mix both touch and pointer events, _get_source_device() in now mentioned in the ClutterEvent documentation, the offscreen-redirect property is now correctly setup, a clutter_box_layout_allocate regression has been repaired, and the DragAction warning that appear when setting the handle to null has been fixed.
Various documentation files have been fixed, and the following translations have been updated in this second maintenance release of the stable Clutter 1.16 library: Hungarian, Greek, Slovak, and Catalan (Valencian).
Last but not least, the developers would like to thank to Jasper St. Pierre, Bastian Winkler, Lionel Landwerlin, Bastien Nocera, Carles Ferrando, Florian Mullner, Efstathios Iosifidis, and others for their contributions to this new Clutter release. As always, you can find a more detailed changelog on the official news file attached to this release.
