Clutter 1.24 Fixes Support For Embedding It In Other Toolkits

Clutter 1.24.0 was released today in time for the upcoming release of GNOME 3.18.0.

Likely one of the most significant changes in the Clutter 1.24 tool-kit release is that it improves the embed-ability of Clutter into foreign tool-kits. For example, support has been restored for embedding Clutter inside GTK+ and for it to work on both Wayland and X11. Clutter on Wayland makes use of sub-surfaces now for dealing with the foreign window support. There's also been various GDK back-end fixes.

Clutter 1.24 also presents fixes for HiDPI, fixing compositor synchronization with the GDK back-end, and more.
