Last week I showed off Decky Loader properly, a fantastic plugin system for the Steam Deck and the developers have now put up a new release solving some problems.

While it worked and the plugins were great, they had some issues where it could cause crashes and make the Quick Access menu "laggy". All of those problems should now be a thing of the past as of version 2.2.7. So if you didn't have a great experience or saw instability with it, now is a good time to take another look! Really nice to see they found the problem and solved it so now more people can enjoy such a great extension system.

Release Highlights:

Gamescope crashes and laggy QAM should now be a thing of the past. Notifications patching was being done pretty much everytime the UI was being interacted with, rather than just when it was needed. Also you can now back out of plugins using the B button as you might expect with the rest of the deck UI!

Very silly that this was all caused by infinitely injecting the notification subsystem... But very happy to get this patched up.

Steam Deck just seems to be getting better and better. Now if SD2 can have OLED 1080p VRR and better processor, then we'd be quite well off. Probably help if battery life was increased also but that is allot to ask.
