The absolutely huge 0.5.8 update for the game manager Lutris is one step closer to a proper release, with a Release Candidate out now. Following on from the Beta release we covered in late October, this RC is mainly cleaning up all the issues found during testing.

A quick reminder of the 0.5.8 highlights:
- Much improved integration with the Lutris website

- Steam games are now loaded from the Steam API
- You can download extras from GOG as part of the install process
- The overall Lutris app design has been improved
