A new release of the community-made compatibility layer GE-Proton version 9-6 is here, although nothing too exciting this time as it's pulling in upstream Proton changes from Valve.

Here's what's changed:

  • Persona 4 Golden video fixes have been re-added.
  • wine updated to latest bleeding edge.
  • dxvk updated to latest git.
  • vkd3d-proton updated to latest git.
  • upstream proton changes added.
  • upstream steamclient changes added.
  • upstream wineopenxr changes added.

Changelog can be found on the GitHub.

As a reminder: GE-Proton is a community-built version of Proton, not supported by Valve, that often has fixes Valve can't distribute (sometimes for legal reasons, other times for more QA testing time). You should generally stick with Valve's normal Proton unless you need GE-Proton for specific fixes.


Update 06/06/24: GE-Proton 9-7 was released not too long after with these changes too:

Or if you want to run games not available on Steam using umu-run. And considering the amount of games that simply aren't on Steam in one form or another, I'd say it's fair to assume you should have it installed anyway, even if you don't use it for Steam games.

Yes, I suppose that's true now, I was thinking specifically Steam when writing that.
