Call for testing: mir-kiosk 2.3.2-snap117

Call for testing

There’s a new build of the mir-kiosk snap based on the latest release of Mir (Mir-2.3.2) detailed here:

To test, just switch to the candidate channel:

 snap refresh --candidate mir-kiosk

And use as normal. Please let us know any results here.

If no problems are identified we aim to promote to stable in a week.

What’s new?

The significant changes for mir-kiosk are:

  1. pointer confinement is enabled by default, so applications (like games) that confine the pointer will work better. (This can be seen with mir-kiosk-neverputt - the invisible pointer no longer “hits the side of the screen” limiting actions.)
  2. xdg-output is enabled by default, so applications that use this can get more information about the available outputs.
