Bug Description

The Mir server aborts when an exception is thrown from the main thread. The expected behavior is for the server to clean up gracefully and propagate the exception to the caller.

The backtrace from bug 1377774 is probably an instance of this problem.

    - Enhancements:
      . New simpler API to configure and run a mir server.
      . The event loop is now based on GLib's main loop library instead of
        Boost.Asio.
      . For Android platforms, the server now sends buffer fence fds to its
        clients instead of potentially stalling the compositor thread waiting
        for them to be signalled.
      . New client debug interface to translate from surface to screen
        coordinates.
    - ABI summary: Servers need rebuilding, but clients do not;
      . Mirclient ABI unchanged at 8
      . Mircommon ABI bumped to 3
      . Mirplatform ABI bumped to 4
