We are pleased to announce Guile-Clutter 1.12.2, the next maintenance
release for the Guile-Clutter 1.0 series.

Thanks David and the team for making GNOME Clutter available in GNU Guile. I really like Clutter (and clutter but that's a story for another time). I find that it's the correct level of abstraction for doing modern applications. It has no high level widgets but provides a flexible API to create your own. I really like it.

Among other things it has bezier lines drawing support via cairo [1], bundles a few OpenGL effects like blur or "page turn" and an animations helpers. This might sound like toy features, but IMO those pave the ground for new GUI paradigms.

Soon more FUI in the wild ;)

Have a look at:

Thanks again!!

[1] I was under the impression that cogl support this natively but it seems like the support did not land upstream yet.

[*] Use a .sig file to verify that the corresponding file (without the
.sig suffix) is intact.  First, be sure to download both the .sig file
and the corresponding tarball.  Then, run a command like this:

        gpg --verify guile-clutter-1.12.2.tar.gz.sig

If that command fails because you don't have the required public key,
then run this command to import it:

        gpg --keyserver --recv-keys A3057AD7

and rerun the 'gpg --verify' command.
