I haven't updated to the latest stable branch yet, and I have

VIM - Vi IMproved 8.2 (2019 Dec 12, compiled Apr 10 2020 17:01:38)
Included patches: 1-303

I don't think I have any non-default options for building Vim, and
:set mouse

Pasting with the middle button works for me in xterm (i.e. doing this
purely as an xterm copy/paste, no vim functionality involved).
With some programs that are mouse-aware in xterms you can shift-mouse
for select and paste.

I haven't checked, but it may be that the +clipboard build option
determines if you can use the "* and/or "+ buffers. You can check if
doing a   "*p  will paste the X selection, and if   "+p   will paste the
clipboard. See :help x11-selection.
