UBUNTU --
It's been a while since last having any major news to report out of the Mir camp for Ubuntu's alternative to Wayland.

If you've been wondering what the Mir crew has been up to, their change-log was recently updated. Mostly it's been a lot of bug-fixing. Some of the recent enhancements outside of fixes has been supporting Android HWC 1.5 and screencast API changes.

Some of the work being targeted for the upcoming Mir 0.23 release is also listed via this Launchpad page. There's more fixes along with some Mir-on-X11 improvements. Nothing new to report yet about Vulkan support for Mir.
