Mir 0.1.1 Has Arrived, But Light On Features

It's been a while since last having any major Mir Display Server news to talk about. The central Mir Bazaar repository for Ubuntu 14.04 LTS developments has been silent lately, but finally a new Mir back was merged back in that provides v0.1.1.

Mir 0.1.1 changes include new unit tests, various fixes to avoid publishing internal headers, support for specifying the Mir nested server name either via a --name= argument or the MIR_SERVER_NAME environment variable, refactoring of the Mir Android display classes, and a first step towards providing surface resize support.

More details on the rather mediocre Mir 0.1.1 changes can be found in the Revision 1162 message.

There's still no official word whether Mir will make it for Ubuntu 14.04 LTS after the XMir-based Unity 7 implementation was postponed from Ubuntu 13.10.
