Valve Offers Up Proton Beta For Testing Steam Play Enhancements

Valve has made available a Proton beta update channel for testing out the latest enhancements for their fork of Wine that also bundles in DXVK for accelerated D3D11-over-Vulkan and other performance/compatibility enhancements to optimize the Linux gaming experience.

Those running the latest Steam beta tonight for the Steam Play Linux functionality should now find a "beta" menu item under the Steam settings area for the compatibility tool to use for Steam Play support for handling Windows games on Linux.

With the current Proton 3.7-4 Beta available today via Steam, there is Python 3 support rather than being limited to Python 2.7, DXVK has been updated to DXVK 0.70 but the D3D10 support isn't yet turned on, better full-screen game integration, logging improvements with PROTON_LOG=1, controller enhancements, and other work.
