For those living on the bleeding edge Ubuntu 13.10 developments, Mir 0.0.6 has been tagged.
was tagged less than two weeks ago but out now is Mir 0.0.6 for those wishing to test this experimental display server that's up for use in future versions of Ubuntu Linux by the desktop and mobile devices.
In going through the Mir Bazaar changes
since 0.0.5, most of the 0.0.6 changes just come down to bug-fixes, plus a major US holiday is thrown into the mix to reduce by a bit the excitement of this short release cycle.
Some of the smaller new work for Mir 0.0.6 includes support for shaped region inputs, improving GBM platform device probing, updated documentation, and some new methods.
For those curious about the steps to install and run Mir atop Ubuntu, see this article
