CodeWeavers and Valve have updated Steam Play once again, this time it's quite a small release to fix up some issues.
Released today was Proton 4.11-5 with these updates:
- Fix a crash caused by certain input devices that was introduced in Proton 4.11-4.
- Fix games running in virtual desktops and semi-transparent windows, both problems introduced in Proton 4.11-4.
- Performance optimization when using a controller on amdgpu driver.
- Improvement to fsync implementation when WINEFSYNC_SPINCOUNT is set.
Full changelog can be found here as always.
Are you interested in listening to podcasts? The latest episode of Linux For Everyone has an interview with CodeWeavers which is well worth a listen. While it doesn't have any new special details (keep expectations in check), it does have some nice background info. The team at CodeWeavers sound like a great bunch.
I continue to be impressed with the progress, can't believe the amount of games that have become playable over the last year thanks to this. No Man's Sky working well with the huge update has to be a personal highlight. What has been your highlight with it recently?
