Valve continues to support Linux gaming. Proof of this is that it continues to develop and improve this great project that has the name Proton. In case you don't know it yet, this implementation is based on Wine to bring native Microsoft Windows games to the Stream Play client for Linux. That means that you can easily play Windows titles in a simple way as a Windows client would. In addition, there is a large list of supported video games that work 100%.
Vavle has announced the release of Proton 4.11 for Steam Play. An interesting improvement with important changes, among them thousands of improvements such as some that affect bugs in previous versions, problems when playing certain video games, and also for Vulkan (D9VK). As a side effect, there will also be 154 patches coming from the advancements in Proton that will go directly to Wine, which is great news for these communities, which nurture each other.
DXK has been updated to version 1.3, and users who like virtual reality are also in luck. The latest version of the OpenVR SDK is now supported. On the other hand, FAudio has been updated to v19.07 and GameMaker titles have had some fixes. There are also improvements in terms of the consumption of hardware resources that this software makes, optimizing it to reduce the load.
On the other hand, as we have already mentioned in LxA, Valve is not satisfied with just that. Surely you know another of the opensource projects that have arisen, in part to Valve, such as xrdesktop. The company is pushing for more and more Linux support, and now traditional desktop environments like KDE Plasma and GNOME can also be integrated with virtual reality technologies.
