The single-player and co-op life sim / farming game Roots of Pacha has a big update out now, with it there's plenty of new content and a nice fix for Steam Deck players docking to the big screen.

For Steam Deck players and Linux Desktop, the game has been a bit problematic with controllers. That should be a little bit better with this update as they noted "Steam Deck now recognizes external controller and can work in docked mode". However, it's not fully fixed, as "there's still a known issue in the library we use that will prevent reconnection from a disconnected controller" but it's certainly better than it was.
