== What was done engineering wise? ==

  * Testing the compiz release
  * Attempting to get a Unity 5.6 release out
    * There were issues and regressions with these, several relating to 
the change in keybinding handling in compiz that is needed for tap 
detection.  This is needed to stop the hud appearing when using 
Alt+anything quickly

  * LIM PPA up to date, and tested
    * Minor tweaks needed before design sign-off
    * Decision was made to NOT have this in precise
    * LIM will be made available post-precise in an "offical" tech 
preview PPA (details yet to be decided)

  * Lots of other distro and design priority bugs

  * Work was done around a 3D tile switcher which has now been defined 
as a must land precise "feature".  This is a rendering change only and 
not behavioural.  Will have a fallback to the current switcher for low 
end graphics cards.

== What's about to land that might impact the other teams? ==

  * Bug fixes, but shouldn't really have impact on others
