The open source app for the Itch games store has a major update

Ah goodie, it's update day for the Itch app, this is becoming one of my favourite days. I love the effort put into it, and this release is no different with it now translated to 30+ languages.

It has very quickly filled the void the Desura left in my heart, so great stuff. I check on the github activity regularly and submit bugs that I find, and I do love the bug reporter in the app. If it detects a game won't launch, it will pop up a handy button to submit a bug report with a log directly to github. I find that to be incredibly handy!

See the releases page on github here to see the full info on it.

Remember, the app is still new and there's lots still to do. I look forward to using the Itch.io store more due to this, as I hate manually checking for updates and doing them myself, as I have such limited time nowadays. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

Speaking of which, I wonder if GOG will ever actually launch Galaxy on Linux. I've been using Steam more and more lately due to the convenience, even though there are a lot of things I seriously dislike about the whole games-as-a-service business model and all the social features I couldn't care less about.

Sure they will, only questions are how long will it take before release, and will it be open source (so far, no it won't be apparently).

Great news. I'll have to put up a new build for SteamOS.

Maybe they're waiting for VP to finish wrapping it with eON.
