A new version of MirAL is now available, the Ubuntu project for making it easier to develop new Mir servers by offering a stable ABI and other shared/common components.

The MirAL 0.5 release has some utility scripts for common tasks, improved the tiling window manager mode for miral-shell, more configuration options for the MirAL kiosk mode, and other bug fixes and enhancements.
