Mir
Mir - Wayland compositor

Mir is set of libraries for building Wayland based shells. Mir simplifies the complexity that shell authors need to deal with: it provides a stable, well tested and performant platform with touch, mouse and tablet input, multi-display capability and secure client-server communications.

Mir deals with the bringup and configuration of a broad array of graphics and input hardware, abstracts hardware differences away from shell authors (transparently dealing with hardware quirks) and integrates with system components such as greeters.

Window management is integrated into Mir with useful default behaviour and is extremely customisable by shell authors using a simple high-level API.
