Version available to download on Steam.
Mining, drilling, multiplayer, hosting, dedicated servers, everything that I can think of.
What does not
Sound issues on many systems.
What was not tested
Detailed testing of every item, but assume all to be working.
Disable the Steam overlay. Add vb6run (vbrun6 on PlayOnLinux) and dotnet40 using winetricks, then set oleaut32 to native in winecfg. As of 01.052 you need to delete checksum.xml in Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\common\SpaceEngineers\Content to get the game to work due to the game using SHA-2 checksums. Graphical anomalies in current weekly release (01.052) (may not be a wine bug, rarely present on windows machines as well.) can be fixed, see "Fixing black transparent textures" below.

In order to fix the issue with transparent textures rendering as black boxes you need to edit the TransparentMaterials.sbc file located in 'Steam/SteamApps/common/SpaceEngineers/Content/Data' and add "<AlphaSaturation>1</AlphaSaturation>" to every entry that does not already have an AlphaSaturation tag.
This can be done manually, or use the file from here http://pastebin.com/tXsSAkCF
