GNOME --
Florian Müllner released the latest GNOME Mutter window manager update in the road to this month's GNOME 3.16 debut. In particular, today's Mutter 3.15.91 release has some prominent Wayland fixes.

As it regards Wayland support, Mutter 3.15.91 fixes the nested compositor mode, fixes pointer constraining, and fixes input region support on HiDPI displays.

Outside of Wayland there's support to let themes style buttons differently based on function and various bug-fixes and clean-ups.

The Mutter 3.15.91 changes are listed via this Git commit that tagged the new version a short time ago. GNOME 3.15.91 is due for release today while the GNOME 3.16 Release Candidate is expected on 18 March and the official GNOME 3.16.0 debut is set for 25 March.
