Proton 6.3-5 released with a number of improvements for Windows games on Linux

Valve and their partners have released a new version of Proton to power Steam Play to enjoy Windows games on Linux.

Last week was Proton 6.3-5 RC while now this version has been promoted stable.

Proton 6.3-5 features an increased number of games that should now be playable, including Civilization VI, Crypt Stalker, Far Cry, Hogs of War, Secret of Mana, Trainz Railroad Simulator 2019 and others. Meanwhile, rendering improvements are also being made to a number of games, including Resident Evil 2/3, Metal Gear Solid V, Bloodstained, Deep Rock Galactic, and Team Sonic Racing.

Proton 6.3-5 also brings a patch for Cyberpunk 2077 and other game fixes.

Proton 6.3-5 also improved GPU device selection, better controller support, and better support for container-based versions. DXVK 1.9 powers Direct3D 9/10/11 on Vulkan translations which in itself also means lower presentation latency in some cases, an environment variable control frame limiter option, extended support for texture format and other fixes. VKD3D-Proton has also been updated from its latest state for Direct3D 12 on Vulkan.

Proton 6.3-5 should now appear as an option in Steam for Steam Play while the full changelog or getting the source of this flavor downstream from Wine can be found at GitHub.
