A Year of Clutter

Time:10:30 - 11:15
Day:Thursday 21 January 2010
Location:Renouf 1 (MFC)
Project: Clutter Toolkit

Clutter is a mid-level toolkit that unleashes the power of modern programmable GPUs on the Linux desktop. Using the Clutter Toolkit it is possible to take advantage of hardware acceleration in a simple way, creating visually rich, fast, portable and animated graphical user interfaces.

This presentation will detail the past, present and future of Clutter, right after the 1.0 release has been achieved: the lessons learned, the current state of the library and what lies ahead.
