The Machinery game engine, from Our Machinery, just released a new public beta adding Linux and early ray-tracing support. The Machinery is an in development game engine from the creators of the BitSquid and Stingray game engines. The Machinery is a very light weight modular game engine with a simple C based API. We most recently looked at The Machinery in late 2020 when it entered public beta.

- Linux Support (Preview) — The Machinery now runs on Linux.
- Bindless GPU Resource Management — Better performance in Vulkan backend.

As always, we also have a number of smaller updates.
