We’ve kicked off the process to release Mir 0.31.0, the major things to note are:
MirAL version 2.0
We’ve taken the pending 18.04LTS as a good point at which to break the libmiral ABI and tidy up the API and, as a result, simplify the examples using it.
Our Wayland support is still improving. And while it isn’t “done” we’ve decided that our support for xdg-shell V6 (unstable) is good enough to enable by default.
The candidate releases are available from the usual places:
On Ubuntu 16.04, 17.10 & 18.04
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mir-team/rc
$ sudo apt install mir-demos
On Fedora 26, 27, 28
$ sudo dnf copr enable ngompa/mir-prerel-fedora
$ sudo dnf install mir-demos
One thing that didn’t quite make the release is an example mir-desktop-session. I mentioned this on the UBports forum but it isn’t ready. Work on this is in progress and will ship the next update.
