Mir 0.32.1 release candidate

Testing Mir 0.32.1 release candidate

Testing has begin for the Mir 0.32.1 bugfix release. T is available from the Release Candidate PPA. Assuming you have the release version of Mir installed you can update as follows:

sudo apt-add-repository --update ppa:mir-team/rc
sudo apt upgrade -y

As is right and proper for a bugfix release there are no ABI breakages, so you don’t need to rebuild downstream projects like egmde or Unity8.


- Enhancements:
  . [libmiral] Launcher for internal Wayland clients. (#410)
  . [miral-shell] Reinstate the "spinner" when starting miral-shell
    (re-implementing it in Wayland)
- Bugs fixed:
  . [mesa-kms] Select EGLConfig matching our GBM format. (#435)
  . [Wayland] Don't send output events that are not supported in the agreed
    protocol version. (#389)
  . [Wayland] Ensure resize configuration events are not superseded. (#449)

This release fixes the problems seen on Ubuntu Cosmic and should make its way to the Ubuntu archives after release.

Unfortunately Mir 0.32.1 doesn’t currently work with UBports Unity8.

I’ve done enough investigation to think that this is not entirely a Mir issue, so we are releasing 0.32.1.

@mariogrip of UBports is aware of the issue & we’ve discussed what I’ve found so far. (He has the Mir team contacts he needs to resolve the issue.)
