Canonical Working On Mir's Performance, Mir On Mir
This past week Canonical developers made a little more progress on their Mir Display Server stack and the next-generation Unity desktop interface.
When it comes to Canonical's Wayland alternative for Ubuntu, last week they added LLTng trace-points to Mir, finished modifications to Mir to allow for performance analysis, and added/packaged a Mir stress testing tool. This week they will be aiming for continued Unity 8 integration, Android composition bypass support, and starting work on Mir-Mir support and supporting Mir-Mir in LightDM (running a shell on the system compositor).
When it comes to Unity 8, issues were fixed up concerning notifications, Infographics have landed, PIN and passphrase lock support is in review, there's initial support for smart scopes in review, and the launcher API is in review, among other development progress.
More details on the latest Mir / Unity 8 progress can be found on the ubuntu-devel list.
