UBUNTU --
At the end of March longtime Mir developer Alan Griffiths of Canonical announced EGMDE, the Mir Desktop Environment as a desktop example implementing Mir/MirAL APIs and supporting Wayland clients. Griffiths has now put out his latest article in guiding interested developers in working with the code.

His latest chapter on getting developers familiar with Mir/MirAL via the "Example Mir Desktop Environment" is on supporting different keyboard keymaps and implementing wallpaper support.
