UBUNTU --
Ubuntu developers this week released version 0.24 of the Mir display server.

Mir 0.24 adds a new mirvanity tool for measuring client-to-screen latency when used in conjunction with a high-speed video camera, support for full desktop OpenGL servers, new buffer semantics (NBS), and various other internal changes. 48 bugs were targeted by the Mir 0.24 release.

The new buffer semantics work was one of the stepping stones towards supporting Vulkan on Mir, but it still hasn't arrived. The next hope is to see Vulkan support in time for Mir 0.25.

Details on Mir 0.24 for those interested can be found via Launchpad.net.
