MirAL 1.2 Released: Mir's Abstraction Layer
Written by Michael Larabel in Ubuntu on 16 February 2017 at 12:49 PM EST. 4 Comments
Alan Griffiths of Canonical has announced the release of MirAL 1.2 for Ubuntu 17.04 and the Ubuntu Stable Phone Overlay.

MirAL, for those that don't know, is an abstraction layer to Mir that tries to make it easier for developing new Mir servers by having a stable ABI and other "sensible default behaviors."

MirAL 1.2 splits its C++ wrapper to the Mir client library into its own package (libmirclientcpp-dev), the main MirAL guide/documentation has been rewritten, and there are a number of bug fixes to this Mir abstraction layer.
