    Default Mir 0.0.8 Released, Weekly Update

    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?

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

    Love > hate.

    I don't like where it's heading, but I welcome the coverage, and the periodic updates are good. Just that they don't come often enough to the testing repo (there was an answer on the dev-list about it, saying those releases are a testbed, but it's a goddamn alpha, how can it be more "testbedder"?).
