Bye bye, 17.04
This week saw the end of support for 17.04 - and the
unity8-desktop session: we will no longer be building Mir for this version of Ubuntu.
Hello, Fedora 27
In CI we’ve gained some build nodes and enabled Fedora 27 builds there.
Wayland Conformance Test Suite
@RAOF has continued to add tests to the Wayland Conformance Test Suite and update Mir to continue passing them.
In addition to Ubuntu 18.04 and the Mir Release PPA and Fedora 26, 27 and rawhide archives Mir 0.29.0 is now available as a snap: Mir-kiosk 0.29.0 updates
@alan_g has continued to progress the support for Wayland Core, which is now good enough to switch the launch utilities
to using Qt’s Wayland support by default.
This means Mir can now run Qt applications as well on Fedora as it does on Ubuntu.
This is available from the Mir Development PPA
Not yet landed, but up for review, there’s some initial work by William W Wold and @alan_g to support the Wayland extensions used by GTK based applications.
