Putting the finishing touches on Leadwerks for Linux

I'm happy to say that Leadwerks now supports the entire process of making games natively on Linux. Let's take a quick tour through the process.

First, we create a new project in the project wizard. The project wizard will detect project templates (you can make your own) and let you make a game based on Lua script, or on a combination of C++ and script:

Step two is to make your game. Fortunately, you've got everything you need built into a single integrated editor, including script and shader debugging, automatic asset reloading, and built-in level design tools:

Once you have something you want to share, the project publisher will copy all required files into an export directory. Future feature idea: Add a call to a command-line tool to pack up .deb packages. Or better yet, allow any arbitrary executable to be run at the end of the publishing process.

I have some more testing to do before release, but things are looking good!
