We didn’t release much new Mir code over the past week: Mir 1.1.2 was a very minor bugfix release that addresses the feedback from PostmarketOS.

@raof has been updating our wlcs tool for testing Wayland conformance after experimenting with using it with Weston.
@wmww is trying to get a snap of his work on MATE into the store. There’s been a slight delay as it is currently infeasible to release this (or any workable desktop) as a confined snap.
And I have been sketching out how we can support shells that want to implement Wayland extension protocols with needing to get these changes upstreamed into Mir.
@saviq has started a discussion about making it easier to snap servers based on Mir.

But others found problems that we never got around to fixing (it was only a proof of concept) and one person has solved the problems that matter to them by creating a kiosk snap based on the WPE WebKit backend:
How are you using Mir?
If you are using Mir would you be able to share something about it?
Any details about your particular use-case would be awesome to know . Also, what worked well? What did not? Anything you feel missing?
