Version 3.18.1 of GNOME's Mutter window and compositing manager was released today for the GNOME 3.18.1 point release.

Notable to GNOME Mutter 3.18.1 are fixes to improve the state of HiDPI on Wayland. There's also been a number of crash fixes plus the addition of fullscreen/unfullscreen animations.

The Mutter 3.18.1 work on better Wayland HiDPI support are some window geometry fixes by Jonas Ã…dahl. There are also cursor fixes for HiDPI with XWayland that previously led to the cursor being double-scaled.

Details on the few other Mutter 3.18.1 changes can be found via the Mutter 3.18.1 Git entry.
