Reading through #ubuntu-mir backlog made me realize that this CFT
should've probably gone to this list too. I've added a patch to fix xmir
build (in ubuntu+1 branch on alioth.d.o), and the plan was to move the
updates to main before FF. We're currently blocked by an issue on nvidia
hybrids where unity-greeter crashes when using the blob.

  I've prepared the latest xserver release in a PPA for xenial, and
while the update shouldn't cause problems it deserves more eyes before
putting it in the main repo .

You can get it by enabling the staging-ppa:

apt-add-repository ppa:canonical-x/x-staging
apt update && apt upgrade

However, if you are using the fglrx driver do note that there is no
version of the driver that works with this xserver, meaning that by
using this PPA the driver will be removed and the OSS driver stack is
enabled instead. This is expected and something the x-team will make
sure works more smoothly in 16.04.

If you bump into new issues (compared to stock xenial), file a bug
against 'xorg-server' and mention that you're using this PPA. Feel free
to ping me on #ubuntu-x (freenode, ~UTC office hours) and report
successful upgrades too :)
