Whiteboard

[asac, Oct 18, 2011]: would need the nux/unity/compiz branches soon for integration. Amaranth: will you be able to make them available on graphics wg release day (e.g. this thursday)?
[jesse-barker, Oct 18, 2011]: On track for Thursday.
[amaranth, Oct 19, 2011]: Unity: lp:~linaro-graphics-wg/unity/unity-gles Nux: lp:~linaro-graphics-wg/nux/nux-gles2 Compiz and plugins-main should be available later today or early Thursday morning
[rsalveti, Oct 21, 2011] Please post where the released branches are located, and also the packaging you said you've done already.
[amaranth, Oct 21, 2011] The packaging branches are on https://code.launchpad.net/~amaranth/ and the code is all on https://code.launchpad.net/~linaro-graphics-wg/ Sadly I was unable to solve the bug that stalled the upload of these so menus are a bit weird while running unity.
[ogra, Oct 24, 2011] added a ubuntu-desktop test target. Note that the UDS demo this work is for will not be on top of a linaro image, so please also test on top of ubuntu-desktop.
[dzin, Nov 9, 2011] Broke out unfinished item into bug 888237 and marked as implemented.
[rsalveti, Nov 20, 2011] For the support to be enabled at Ubuntu, the bug 779801 needs to get fixed again.

Headline: New Unity 3D has been integrated and is available at the Oneiric Ubuntu LEBs, with full GLES support.

Acceptance: Unity 3D running with Oneiric without any major issues.
