Ubuntu Weekly Update and Hour-long Mir Interview

Beginning last week, we started our Ubuntu Weekly Update videocast that provides a range of weekly updates to keep our community, press, upstreams, and partners in the loop and up to date with recent progress.

Today’s show was a special two-hour show with two parts:

  1. The first part (beginning at the start of the video) includes status updates from the engineering mangers and project leads of Mir, Unity, Juju (Core and Ecosystem), Click Packages/App Upload Process, Ubuntu Touch, Unity APIs, and Community. We also fielded questions from the community who were viewing the show.
  2. The second part (beginning at 59.54) includes an hour-long interview with Chris Halse-Rogers (Mir Engineer), Kevin Gunn (Mir and Unity Engineering Manager), Oliver Ries (Director of Display Server and Unity Engineering), Robert Ancell (Mir Technical Lead), Steve Langasek (Ubuntu Foundations Engineering Manager), and Thomas Voss (Technical Architect). Again, viewers of the show asked a number of questions that were answered by the team.

As ever, questions are welcome in the comments, and Mir-specific questions are welcome on #ubuntu-mir on Freenode and on the Mir mailing list.
