At his blog, Robert Ancell provides a status report about the work he and Ryan Lortie have been doing to ensure that recent GTK+ applications run in Ubuntu's Unity 8 environment. While there is still work to be done, including fixes for cursor changes, fullscreen support, and subwindow focusing, he notes that there is a personal package archive (PPA) available for testing libraries and select applications. "The Mir backend currently on the wip/mir branch in the GTK+ git repository. We will keep developing it there until it is complete enough to propose into GTK+ master. We have updated jhbuild to support Mir so we can easily build and test this backend going forward."
