I’ve received a bunch of questions about the state of the perl-Clutter bindings in the past couple of years; I entertained a vain hope of returning to actively maintaining them, but the effort of actually maintaining the underlying C library left little to no time for bindings (just ask the pyclutter users).
luckily, the stellar work done by Torsten Schönfeld on Glib::Object::Introspection allowed me to jump start an introspection-based binding module for Clutter in about half an hour - including the time spent porting one of the examples in the C API reference to Perl.
contributions are very much welcome — though I’ll try to reserve some spare time for going back to the same levels of compatibility as the old, static bindings. one area for new contributors is pure-Perl overrides to paper over the C API; another is writing Cogl bindings, possibly static ones like perl-Cairo, as the Cogl API is not very introspection-friendly.
