Intel Offers Clutter Toolkit Pre-1.0 Snapshot
Emmanuele Bassi of Intel's Open-Source Technology Center has just announced a new development release of the Clutter Toolkit that will lead up to the Clutter 1.0 stable release. For those unfamiliar with Clutter, it is an open-source toolkit designed to develop user interfaces using an OpenGL / OpenGL ES back-end, but without the complexities of programing in OpenGL. Clutter also provides a Pango font renderer and some other interesting features.
Clutter 0.9 that was just released is a significant update over the earlier Clutter 0.8 build and has major API changes with new effects and capabilities. A horde of bugs have also been addressed. The Clutter 0.9.0 release announcement with change-log can be found on the GNOME mailing list.
Among other applications, Clutter is going to be used for designing the user interface for Intel's Moblin OS. More about the Clutter Toolkit can be found on its project web-site.
