Building upon a bunch of big new features in the first Lutris v0.5.9 Beta, a second Beta is out now with a focus on polishing up the experience that needs more testing.
What is Lutris? It's a free and open source application to help you manage games from various sources. This includes GOG, Humble Store, Epic Games, Steam, Emulators, Compatibility Layers (Wine) and much more. It's a simple way of keeping all your games together in one place.
