Nice to see the security is being kept up to date, looking forward to see what the future holds.
Thanks for the update! Keep doing you awesome work.

If I may ask... Is there something that could be done to make SteamOS usable with in-home streaming, as the host?

There is a world of difference in performances vs the steam desktop client (on Ubuntu, in my case). I would like to have my personnal "SteamOS server" but the steamcompmgr (steamos-compositor) seems to be causing a lot of stuttering with in-home streaming.

Thanks again!

@mohandevir there is some activity related to the compositor on the SteamOS tracker - https://github.com/ValveSoftware/SteamOS/issues/676

In particular there is a third party fork that might have some fixes.

As far as Valve supported, I'm afraid compositor work on brewmaster isn't very high on the priorities list right now :(

At least, thanks for the input. I'll try that and come back if it fixes my issues.

Not waiting on it, but It raises my hopes for Clockwerk. ;)

This problem still persists on my machine as stated in Github (getting no response):

Nope. It doesn't solve the issue, but the colored frame, when starting a proton title, is gone. I sent a message to the maintainer to see if something can be done...

Do you know if there is an easy way to turn off the built-in compositor vsync, for testing purpose? Talking to Alkazar led him to think that SteamOS' vsync might be the culprit.

Thanks again for your awesome work!

with two release per year.. i wonder if security is so much their concern...
some websites specialized in distros linux : are no more considering this as an os...
last update they did was 4 years ago ...no ?
2015-06-26: Development Release: SteamOS 2.0 Preview

and they are checking a lot the linux gaming :

Headlines:
•2019-01-09 Linux well supported by popular games
•2018-10-29 Over 2,600 Windows Steam games now run on Linux
•2018-08-22 Steam to run Windows games on Linux

https://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=steamos

by the way ...unreal will soon provide a real linux os for gamer... they have the best engine for gaming , they opened a game distributor on the web ..
i am sure they will not make all the mistakes that did " valve ' s boss" during the years his games were top ... " his business with games like svencoop that still not has a hl2 beta .. but a lot of hl updates that no-one cares or so.. or of course black-zilla-mesa still not finished ...that behaves like svencoop at the time of sc3 ... they all deserve to think of their work "probably the best ...in the world " or probably surely NOT ... LOL :steambored:
Very good to hear
