razing32I wonder if they'll make it less clunky than the original.

Bethesda's engine was pretty bad back then. They made some pretty terrible Terminator games with it also.

ShabbyXI myself would like to tackle this, but I have so much on my plate, I could use help getting the initial code done.

If you're not just trolling: there's already code being used by some distributions:

New Steam Client Beta up with an updated Steam Linux Runtime and memory leak fixes

chancho_zombieThe problem is still there the library gets stuck and unresponsive with the pointy hand cursor.

I hadn't seen this before, but ironically just after reading this it happened to me.

scaineI'm missing right now, and I haven't spent long hunting, is a way to show what games are taking up the most space on my disk.

On the Home screen, where it has the list of "ALL GAMES" one of the sorting options is "Size on Disk"

scaineIt also doesn't seem to be amazingly obvious when a game is using Steam Play

That's the biggest missing feature from the new design, which I've been complaining about since the "leaked" preview.

What's that? Another Steam Client Beta update? With a Linux platform filter? Yes it is

VodkaChickenI wish they add a way to easily see which version of proton a game is using and whether or not it has been whitelisted. That's the main thing I miss from the old library.

Same here.

I noticed there is now a "Scroll to Top" next to the "Filtered List" dropdown when you have scrolled down (or was it there before)? But even with that, it seems like there is room for the Linux / Recent / Ready to play icons on the same row, rather than having that dead space to the left of those icons.

A French court has ruled that Valve should allow people to re-sell their digital games

MalNedless to say that releasing an untested and badly optimized game would quickly become a suicidal move and nobody would do it.

Isn't that what killed Arkham Knight, which released right after the new Steam refund policy came into effect? We lost the Linux port due to that, sadly...

Total War Saga: TROY officially announced and it will be coming to Linux next year

Feral must have a pretty favorable contract with Sega, to be porting every Total War game. Perhaps Creative Assembly tried and failed to do the first Linux port themselves (didn't they promise one that was never delivered?), so Feral was contracted to do the next dozen of them, or something like that. ;-)

Valve have already begun tweaking the new Steam Library Beta

jgacasopening Oxygen Not Included page eats all my 8 GB of RAM + 2 GB of swap file in a matter of seconds.

Don't know if it will help, but try turning on "Low Bandwidth Mode" and "Low Performance Mode" in the Library section of the Steam settings. The first option at least cut out some cruft I didn't care to see.

johndoeCurrently I don't see anything, that MS or Apple did to enrich the FOSS ecosystem

I'm no big fan of either, but: Apple funds development of projects like CUPS, LLVM, and Webkit (not that Webkit is terribly relevant any more). Microsoft has become a big contributor to Git, and funds the guys who made Mono.

The new Steam Library Beta is officially out for you to try

Quotethere now seems to be no way to view just Linux games. Previously, you could switch between Linux games and all games but now that option is just gone. It also no longer tells you if a game is running with Steam Play, that bit is also just gone.

Exactly the same issues I complained about when there was the "leaked" preview...
