  • Lutris improves the Steam Deck experience with better Flatpak support
  • A new character has been added to the Skullgirls cast: Umbrella


  • Not necessarily related to Linux, but let’s get a petition going for Portal 3. Eric Wolpaw, writer for several of Valve’s titles, says “we should just do it”
