Two bits of Valve news to cover tonight: SteamOS gains a new beta version and it looks like Steam Play Proton will be getting an update soon. Updated: Steam Play 4.2-4 is out.
Valve haven't given up on their home-grown Linux distribution yet, with SteamOS seeing another beta update. Additionally, there's another Steam Beta Client update about.
SteamOS, Valve's Linux distribution aimed at a more console-like big TV experience actually saw some small updates recently.
How-To: Enable Valve's Proton Compatibility Tool in SteamOS, since the option isn't actually included directly in SteamOS yet.
Valve have hired another developer to upstream SteamOS driver changes, including Xbox One S rumble support
Valve's Pierre-Loup Griffais announced on Twitter that they've hired Andrey Smirnov to help them get some SteamOS changes upstream into the main Linux Kernel.
Not to be confused with the upcoming SteamOS 3.0, this beta update is for the current 'Brewmaster' release.
This is a little exciting! It seems Valve are pushing ahead with some major updates to SteamOS with SteamOS 3.0.
Really good to see this. SteamOS had a small update recently, which is testing the waters towards a bigger update.
In an interesting blog post written up today, Valve's Erik Johnson has said how Valve will be relaxing their rules for what will be acceptable on Steam.
Sad to see this, another developer hitting SteamOS-specific issues where Valve didn't approve the Linux build. This time it's the free RTS Zero-K.
It seems my recent article about Valve removing the link to the Steam Machines page caused quite a stir, so Valve have now confirmed their continued support for Linux gaming.
In a move that's not exactly surprising, Valve has quietly removed the Steam Machine section from Steam.
You might have heard of Microsoft's latest plans to keep people on their own store, with a locked down Windows 10 S mode to be available on all versions of Windows.
Valve seem to be doing well for early 2018 when it comes to Linux, not only are they updating SteamOS more often, Linux is also getting some overdue attention with the Steam Client too.
Valve have updated the SteamOS beta once again, this time they're pulling in some major package updates to give a better experience.
