UBUNTU --
Mir 0.16 was quietly released a few days back as the newest upstream release of this display server for Ubuntu Linux.

Mir 0.16.0 brings a much shorter buffer holding time for system compositors to provide higher and smoother frame-rates, progress on new buffer semantics, Mir-on-X11 changes, improved logging, the start of code refactoring to support renderers other than OpenGL (such as Vulkan in the future), and a variety of other changes.

There's also been a large number of bug-fixes with Mir 0.16.

More details on Mir 0.16.0 for Ubuntu users can be found via its Launchpad.net entry.
