    Default Mutter 2.29.1 Brings Dependence On Clutter 1.2

    Phoronix: Mutter 2.29.1 Brings Dependence On Clutter 1.2

    Mutter, the new window manager designed for GNOME 3.0 integration to replace Metacity 2, has experienced a new development release. Mutter reached version 2.29.0 last month and it integrated the most recent Metacity changes (up to v2.26), improved appearance of scaled down windows using mipmap emulation, new signals and properties, and many other changes. Metacity 2.29.1 that's been released today doesn't bring as many changes to the table...

    Default Last week I replaced Metacity with Mutter.

    Works pretty well. Last night I built Mutter from git and it has improved. Nice, consistent and smooth animations. It is using more memory, however (from about 38M to about 64M). They made a change to the "mass" of the windows so that it lags less than it use to (a good change, IMO). Still waiting for more info about Mutter's plugin support...
