Name        : mutter
Product     : Fedora 16
Version     :
Release     : 1.fc16
URL         : None
Summary     : Window and compositing manager based on Clutter
Description :
Mutter is a window and compositing manager that displays and manages
your desktop via OpenGL. Mutter combines a sophisticated display engine
using the Clutter toolkit with solid window-management logic inherited
from the Metacity window manager.

While Mutter can be used stand-alone, it is primarily intended to be
used as the display core of a larger system such as gnome-shell or
Moblin. For this reason, Mutter is very extensible via plugins, which
are used both to add fancy visual effects and to rework the window
management behaviors to meet the needs of the environment.

Update Information:

This release contains a couple of fixes for major drawing and performance problems, and also contains a patch from Alex Larsson that improves how monitor hotplug works when attaching a monitor on the left of the current display.

  [ 1 ] Bug #720605 - Redraws do not always render completely - affects all hardware - workaround: CLUTTER_PAINT=disable-clipped-redraws:disable-culling
  [ 2 ] Bug #731809 - gnome-shell in cpu-eating loop on wake from screensaver

This update can be installed with the "yum" update program.  Use 
su -c 'yum update mutter' at the command line.
