Steam for Linux has 64-Bit Gaming Support


Valve has launched a new beta version for its Steam for Linux client, bringing a lot of interesting new features.

After a development version garners sufficient changes, Valve promotes it to stable. The work for the next beta starts almost immediately.

Highlights of the latest Steam for Linux beta update:

  • Support for 64-bit Linux titles has been implemented;
  • A “friendly machine name” is now provided when Steam-Guarding an account;
  • Finding Steam client skins on Linux now works properly;
  • A crash that occurred when looking at community images on Linux has been fixed;
  • Linux Steam overlay is now restoring the proper mouse cursor;
  • The data format of client updates has been changed in order to improve the compatibility with flawed proxy servers.

A complete list of changes brought by this release can be found in the official announcement.
