LINUX GAMING --
Xonotic, the successor to Nexuiz and one of the best open-source games in recent years (certainly my favorite, since it's a great open-source game benchmark), is out with a new release.

Xonotic 0.8.1 presents to its multi-platform gaming base three new maps, a new menu theme, and new gameplay features.

Sadly with this Xonotic update there are no major updates to the OpenGL renderer or other low-level technical updates that excite me the most. But at least some refactoring to the code-base did take place.

More details on Xonotic 0.8.1 can be found via the release announcement. Embedded below is a video overview of the new Xonotic 0.8.1 release.
