    Phoronix: Ubuntu's Mir Finally Supports Drag & Drop

    With Mir 1.0 expected to be not too far out, the developers working on this display server for Ubuntu Linux are tackling the remaining work items, some are larger than others...

    This is ridiculous, frankly.

    We told them it would take them years to get anywhere when they announced it, we were more right than we wanted to be.

        Bazaar looks like something someone created to hinder development.

            You do know that Wayland's drag-and-drop isn't much better? I can only speak about Gnome 3 (old distribution without Plasma Wayland), but it is not possible to drag and from a Wayland window to an X window. Which is very annoying for impromptu file transfers.

              It looks like Wayland and Mir are both in perpetual alpha/beta.

                This appears to be something that was implemented almost 2 years ago.

                  They are both replacing something that has been under development for 30 years... so having it come about so quickly is pretty good. Wayland at least has had boring releases for the last year - which are good, stable releases with the bulk of the changes being around bringing up new DE's quickly using a toolkit.

                  The hard part for the old DE's removing decades of X assumptions from their code which is coming along quite nicely
