That's right folks the latest beta changes to the Steam client have been pushed to the main branch so now amongst other fixes Linux can finally get 64bit games from Steam!

Linux specific fixes:

  • Added support for 64-bit Linux titles

  • Fixed finding Steam client skins on Linux

  • Fixed crash looking at community images on Linux

  • Fixed Linux Steam overlay not restoring the proper mouse cursor in certain situations

  • Fixed resource leak on game exit leading to graphics corruption on Linux

Good to see some decent changes rolling in for Linux.

Looks like Steam's big summer sale is happening within the next 2 days as well so get your wallets ready!

It would be nice to have a comprehensive list of 64 bit compatible games.
