Complete overhaul of the Galaxy client.
Logging in, installing games, launching games, notifications. system tray icon.
What does not
The window is just a black screen (Bug 44985). It's a known bug with a simple workaround. However, this workaround will make the application sluggish and use a lot of CPU power.
Also, games will crash if you try to use screen overlay.
To avoid black screen: launch winecfg, add a DLL override for 'libglesv2.dll', select "Disable".
Go into launcher settings -> Game Features -> disable screen overlay.
You may also need to install winetricks corefonts
What was not tested
Third-party integration (e.g. Steam)
Social features (e.g. friends)
Importing games that were already installed.
Previous reports said you must install dotnet, but I didn't need to do this in Wine 6.1. Installer and launcher seems to work fine with built-in Mono and a 64-bit Wine prefix.
