Mutter Window Manager Gets More Wayland Fixes Before the Launch of GNOME 3.22

GNOME 3.22 Release Candidate should be out later today, September 14, 2016, but until it arrives, we would like to tell you a little bit about one its core components, the Mutter window and compositing manager, which has been updated recently with several fixes for the Wayland display server. Mutter 3.21.92 (means 3.22 Release Candidate) is out now, and looking at the release notes, we can notice that animated cursors now work again on Wayland, along with absolute pointer motion events and XWayland pointer warp emulation. Moreover, several nasty crashes have been pathed as well as for Wayland.
