UBUNTU --
Developers continue making progress on maturing the Ubuntu Phone software stack, including Unity 8 atop Mir.

Ɓukasz Zemczak wrote in yesterday's landing team update about the latest work. Aside from a new address book service and other package updates, a big Unity 8 update is in the works. Zemczak wrote, "A big Unity8 landing that was long in development, integrating unity-controlled mouse pointers, external screen support and many other convergence changes is now ready to land. The silo has been tested and now we're only waiting for a final archive admin binNEW review. Great stuff."

It's great to see more of Ubuntu's convergence goals finally being realized and the important external screen support for Ubuntu phones getting tackled as part of that. Those curious about other Ubuntu Phone updates can find out more - as always - via the Ubuntu-Phone list.
