I've been waiting for this for many months, and Valve has finally fixed their Steam store filters to allow you to view only Upcoming games on SteamOS & Linux.

It's insane how long it actually took them to fix this. It was reported to them in March of last year on github, and it wasn't working for quite a while before then from what I remember.

This makes things a lot easier to sort our Release Calendar out, and for general users looking at what's coming.

Well done Valve for finally fixing it. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

By the way, this may be the same update that added all the upcoming Linux games to the all Linux games list causing the 1900+ game débâcle.

But really, that's one reason I use GamingOnLinux, to see all the stuff happening and coming up and out.

they still havent fixed browser detection, every time i use opera/vivaldi on store page i see those shitty windows games i dont care about, why on earth they broke this, it was working fine before october last year. it has been reported on github since, but nothing changed.

Whew! I used to have to add "Windows" to the Upcoming filter to see Linux games (past page 1) then scan for the little round Steam circle. This is going to save a lot of time and squinting. A hearty huzzah, indeed.

Give it another year, and like this bug they may fix it...

They should be ashamed it took them so long to fix something so painfully simple...

I really wish they could fix the scaling for high resolution displays.
I have a 4k TV and can hardly see the words! I have to use a magnifying tool to use steam
(when not in big picture mode).

Not a perfect solution, but have you tried the Compiz "Enhanced Zoom" function? I made a 30s video about it a few years ago.

But yeah, c'mon Valve. That said, they've only been aware of this bug for 18 months, so realistically we've got a few years yet for any hope of a fix going by their current shameless bug fixing record.
