Hello Linux Geeksters. Canonical works hard in order to get the Mir display server ready until the release of Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander, which will take place in Octomber 2013.
An updated version of Canonical’s display server , Mir 0.0.10 has been released a few hours ago, in order to test some multi monitor improvements. Being already the feature-freeze week for Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander, the developers have to finish all the improvements possible and focus on bugfixes. For a full list of changes, since Mir 0.0.9, see this bzr link.
Mir 0.0.10 has been build to the ppa:mir-team/qa-testing only 5 hours ago, in order to facilitate the users to test the multi-monitor improvements brought so far, until the feature-freeze. For now, there are still problems with resolution changing for build-it displays / secondary displays and also some rotation modifications for the display orientation.
Mir 0.0.10 can be tested only on the Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander daily builds.
If you are a bleeding edge technology enthusiast, this is what you have to do to install the latest Mir display server on Ubuntu Saucy:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mir-team/qa-testing
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install mir unity-system-compositor
