Lutris, the excellent free and open source game manager for Linux has a fresh release up with some brand new and big features that made it in.

One of the headline additions is Humble Bundle support, allowing you to login to your Humble Store account and download any of the DRM-free release you own from their store making managing those less annoying. A wonderful addition! Speaking on Twitter, they mentioned that more work needs to be done to match up all the games from Humble to those in their database so it's ongoing and support will continue to improve.

There's also resolution switching support for Wayland (Mutter only), an option is included to enable the ACO shader compiler for the Mesa drivers (needs at least Mesa 19.3), DXVK is enabled by default with D9VK configs migrated to DXVK now they're one project and there's even initial support for VKD3D - so all you using Lutris to help manage Wine can expect the experience to be even better.

A new "runner" (what Lutris launches) made it in too as it now supports the Yuzu Nintendo Switch Emulator. A few tweaks were also made to help handle authentication failure for GOG, a new System info tab in the preferences made it in which is very handy as you can quickly copy and paste your system info from it.

See more on the official Lutris website and their GitHub.

Lutris is great ! Really a game changer for linux gaming. But i really think that such a big and important project (that now has epic funding) diserves a big interface overhaul. Something like the one we find on retroarch or steam bigpicture with controller support.

I'm also interested of decent controller support.

I don't mean to reject it for lacking $nextUnsupportedPlatform, but - is itch.io support planned?

My second ever PR on GitHub, contributing to an open Source Project finally made it:

It was fun implementing this and learning a little bit about the GTK library I hope my code is in good hands and is easy to maintain.

If they also add ryujinx emulator as a runner in the future, Lutris may possibly be the only thing I'll use to launch and manage games.

Well the problem with this is that steam games (wine-steam) will count as windows user. I think it would be better to enhance the linux numbers and visibility if we use the native steam launcher and lutris for everything else.

Speaking of that, do you prefer Ryujinx over Yuzu? If yes, why?

hope VKD3D can get RTX DXR support down the line. Maybe even DLSS2.0 also?

You can play Steam play/proton games in Lutris. However some games do not run as good (or at all) with proton and run very well with a Lutris install script. For those games I'll always choose Lutris + wine (+ DXVK).

CyrilSpeaking of that, do you prefer Ryujinx over Yuzu? If yes, why?

Well currently no, yuzu is just far ahead in terms of game compatibility and performance especially since their Vulkan update. However Ryujinx is just as open source and Linux friendly and some games just run better on Ryujinx and I think it has great potential.
