LINUX GAMING --
Lutris 0.5.5 is out today as the newest version of this Linux game manager to assist in installing both native and emulated games on Linux. Lutris continues to expand the scope of its "runners" for improving the Linux gaming experience.

- Initial support for Humble Bundle integration.

- Resolution switching support for Wayland when using the GNOME Mutter compositor.

- Support for enabling the AMD ACO+RADV shader compiler on supported Mesa versions.
