It has arrived folks! After an announcement back in July about their plans for it, the Unity editor for Linux is now available in an experimental build, and I can't wait to see what Linux developers do with it.
They note that with it being experimental, future support is "not yet guaranteed". It depends on user adoption of the Linux editor and feedback to see if it's something they will continue with along side their Mac and Windows builds.
This new experimental Linux editor is based upon Unity 5.1.0f3 and it can export to the following platforms:
- Linux, Mac, Windows Standalone
It's really fantastic to see them deliver on this, and I do hope it's worthwhile for them and for Linux game developers. Who knows, maybe more developers that use Linux will look to Unity now.
