Mir release 0.27

Mir release 0.27/MirAL release 1.4

This is an interim development release of Mir and MirAL to Ubuntu 17.10 (Artful) that delivers many of the features that were work-in-progress when we needed to restructure the project. The Mir release notes are here: https://launchpad.net/mir/0.27/0.27.0.

The MirAL 1.4 release exposes a few new features and removes support for Mir versions that are no longer supported:

  • Support for passing messages to enable Drag & Drop
  • Support for client requested move
  • Port to the undeprecated Mir APIs
  • Added “–cursor-theme” option when configuring a cursor theme
  • Drop support for Mir versions before 0.26

There will be further Mir releases culminating in a Mir 1.0 release before the Ubuntu 17.10 (Artful) feature freeze in August.
