    Phoronix: Mir 0.0.8 Released, Weekly Update

    It seems Canonical is making it a habit of tagging new versions of the Mir Display Server on a weekly basis. Mir 0.0.8 is out this week with a handful of changes over v0.0.7...

    A change to the Debian packaging so Mir will not build on PowerPC

    WTF?!?

    Oh well, another plus for Wayland.

        We seriously don't need/want these weekly updates.

        I'd rather have more Wayland coverage.

          You != everyone.

          I find the development of Mir highly interesting.

            So fragmentation of Linux community interests you?

                In this case, yes. As a Ubuntu user, I want to see where my favourite Linux distro is going. Even though it might not be a Linux distro much longer which, to be honest, doesn't matter at all to me.

                I am one of those who think Unity is superior (in terms of usage) to everything else. Feel free to hate me as much as you like.

                    Release early, release often is good!

                    RERO.

                      Ubuntu stopped officially supporting PowerPC several years ago, as has just about every other Linux distribution except Debian and Gentoo, so its not surprising that they're not going to cater to the literally hundreds of users left on those platforms.
                      Furthermore, I highly doubt that Weston could be made to run on PowerMacs since drivers for them don't support 3D acceleration, unless you want to try software rendering on a computer that's at least 8 years old.

                        - Continued documentation improvements.

                        - A change to the Debian packaging so Mir will not build on PowerPC architectures but only x86, x86_64, ARMv7 hardfp, and 64-bit ARMv8.

                        - Various other changes and fixes.
                        Could have fooled me.

                          Well, this would be useful if they'd actually release it for testers often, but they don't seem to. The point of releasing is people to use it, else, it's just wasting time (I know, it's just a few minutes that won't really affect development pace, but still). I'd like them to update the repo's version, that's still in 0.0.6 (and this means the annoying extra cursor bug is still there).

                            I want them! I like where Ubuntu is heading. Wayland coverage is welcome too.

                            Love > hate.

                              So can we assume you have already tested all other concepts (for example, ever used a tiling WM?), so that your decision that Unity is the best one is actually based on facts and experience?
