Mir 2.11 Released With A Fix Around XWayland Use

Written by Michael Larabel in Ubuntu on 8 January 2023 at 06:02 AM EST. 22 Comments
A new version of Mir has been released, which in recent years has been serving as a Wayland compositor and used for various niche use-cases like smart exercise mirrors and other IoT and kiosk-type deployments.

Mir 2.11 is the new release this week and while it's the first release of the new year, it's a tiny one. Mir 2.11 simply notes that Miroil has cleaned up its buffer code and better aligned with upstream QtMir. The only other change is fixing a Mir fatal error that came down to a race condition with XWayland. This fatal error was observed when running the Audacity software under the EGMDE Mir example desktop/compositor.

Mir and Ubuntu have found use in interesting places.

That's it for the noted changes with this Mir 2.11 update. Downloading the Mir 2.11 sources are available from GitHub.
