Mir 2.5 Released With Wayland Extension Updates For Better Handling On-Screen Keyboards
Mir 2.5 adds support for the zwp_virtual_keyboard_v1 to allow more Wayland on-screen keyboards to work with Mir. The Squeekboard keyboard is also benefiting from this release with zwp_text_input_v3 and zwp_input_method_v2 also now supported. With these additions more on-screen keyboards should work with Mir.
Mir 2.5 also adds axis source information to pointer events for Wayland clients, it will no longer block forever on swap_buffers, updates its wlr_layer_shell_unstable_v1 implementation to version four, and has a number of updates. There are also bug fixes around possible crashes, GTK hiding cursors now works on Mir, input fixes, and also two XWayland fixes.
