    The 0-byte downloads is a MUCH welcome fix. That problem was pretty annoying. Can't say I faced any of the other bugs, but it's nice to see them fixed anyway.

      I agree.

      I also think - although it's a small one - it's annoying that the system tray icon in KDE doesn't open the application window on a (double)click

        Say what you want about Valve, but they certainly aren't slacking when it comes to the lower level stuff.

        The interface itself might be dated and in a dire need of upgrading, but the technology in the lower layers is really quite nicely cared for, even for the projects that don't directly involve Steam.

          Still no SteamPlay option for games with broken naitve version? Like some of Feral games? Sad... Maybe it coming later. I hope...

            The interface is a little dated, but it's not that bad. It supports skins, and if you don't like any of that, isn't Big Picture Mode pretty much what you're expecting?

                  There is no broken Feral port but i think he meant broken on performance terms. Like Deus EX MD , Hitman 2016 , Tomb Raider 2013 etc. Basically Feral's pre Vulkan titles.

                    You can go into the Steam Play options and enable Proton for every Windows game. They just won't support it if it doesn't work. You probably knew that already, I just wanted to make sure. I haven't tried it with anything from Feral.
