Linux Steam Integration, the initiative from the Solus distribution developers has a fresh release showing how far their project to improve Steam on Linux has come.
For those not clued up on it: Linux Steam Integration is a project to make Steam games and Linux play together a bit nicer. It comes with various optimizations and workarounds designed to fix issues in Steam and games, resulting in what should be a smoother gaming experience on Linux.
This latest release adds initial snapd support, a workaround for Unity games that give a black screen (solved in later releases of Unity), a massively enhanced "shim" system, enhanced vendoring rules and more. Since they have snapd support, you can now actually install it using Snap packages too (in the edge channel), however you do need a recent very recent version (likely git/unstable/ppa - they don't say specifically) of snapd to install them.
They aren't stopping with improving Steam, they're also looking to work with GOG games in future too, going by what they said in the latest update. Although, if they do that, they're going to need a new name for it…
It's a very ambitious project, one I plan to keep an eye on. Anything that can help improve the gaming experience on Linux has my vote, especially since it should eventually work across all distributions.
