Own a PlayStation 4 and want to stream games from it to your Linux desktop? Chiaki is great for that and a fresh upgrade is out to keep it working.

As a reminder: it's a free and open source project, not backed by Sony and totally unofficial. Impressive though, and it actually works quite well. Sony recently upgraded the PS4 firmware, and each time that happens it tends to break Chiaki, thankfully though it doesn't happen too often. 

Chiaki 1.3.0 is out now which adds support for the 8.0 firmware, partial touchpad support is in for the DualShock 4 which currently only works on Linux and only if you build from source, they've moved from QtGamepad to SDL2 and some other fixes made it in. It's an essential upgrade.

You can see a previous video of it in action here.

It's pretty awesome that projects like this even exist, and work as well as they do. Another case of a few people doing what a huge company won't.

Find it on GitHub.
