Bug Description

$ bzr branch lp:~dandrader/+junk/animatedDemos
$ cd animatedDemos/CustomCursor
$ qmake && make
$ cd ..
$ qmlscene CursorShapes.qml -I . -- --desktop_file_hint=/usr/share/applications/gedit.desktop

Currently only the following named cursors still work:
UpArrow, Cross, WhatsThis, DragCopy, Busy, DragMove, DragLink

Might also be due to a change in cursor theme itself (didn't check)?

Worth mentioning that Mir 0.25.0 (released in December) switched the cursor naming scheme to match the CSS spec:
  https://www.w3.org/TR/css-ui-3/#propdef-cursor
  https://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/Web/CSS/cursor
  http://www.w3schools.com/cssref/pr_class_cursor.asp

However if you were already using the symbolic constants from <mir_toolkit/cursors.h> then you would not have noticed.

Might need more work...

qtmir (0.5.1+17.04.20170215.1-0ubuntu1) zesty; urgency=medium

  [ Michał Sawicz ]
  * We're at provides 26 already (LP: #1662608)

  [ Alan Griffiths ]
  * Identify the code that depends directly on mirserver-dev headers

  [ Albert Astals Cid ]
  * Check we provide the same unity-application-impl that we require

  [ Daniel d'Andrada ]
  * Resolve mir cursor names using mir symbols instead of plain strings
    (LP: #1662827)

  * ScreenModel: Only expose windows on displays that are turned on (LP:

  * Restore lost LTTng tracepoints, and delete unused ones (LP:

  [ Nick Dedekind ]
  * Added Extended Display Information Data (EDID) parsing.

  [ Alan Griffiths, Nick Dedekind ]
  * Iteration 0 of miral::PersistDisplayConfig. This does nothing yet
    (and breaks nothing in the process). This MP creates a place (miral-
    prototypes) to build prototype miral features and sketches out what
    will need to be implemented for PersistDisplayConfig. (LP: #1644189)
