Unity game engine 5.4 beta now has a Linux build

Posted by , | Views: 19,311
Greetings developers, just to let you know that Unity have now added Linux builds of the fresh 5.4 beta. They have also updated the stable build with core OpenGL fixes, as it was quite broken. I've been testing a few games that showed OpenGL was a bit broken in the latest Unity, so it's nice to see them patch it up (and now have a Linux build with the fixes).

For more info on what went into 5.4 I briefly covered it in an earlier article.

Find the download links here.

It's good to see such a quick turnaround on the Linux build, well done Unity Linux team!
