Version 4.5 of the Unity Game Engine is now available and it carries 450+ reported fixes, redoes the 2D physics support, updates their shader compiler, and has many other changes.

Some of the new features to Unity 4.5 include improving the shader importing process, Sparse Texture support, support for OpenGL ES 3.0 (initially for iOS A7 devices), a module manager has been added with updatable platform support, new editor features, and many other new features and improvements.

Among the Linux-specific work to find in Unity 4.5 includes webcam changes, workarounds for Linux GPU drivers "grossly underreporting" their vRAM capacity, and many other random Linux fixes.

More details on Unity 4.5 can be found at Unity3D.com.
