OVH one of the worlds largest server providers has featured LinuxGSM in a tutorial on how to install Minecraft. This highlights that LinuxGSM has become the go-to solution for quickly and simply installing game servers.
A youtuber with the channel “Infamy Studio” has created a great tutorial video on how to install LinuxGSM. Highlighting how simple it is to set up your own Linux Gameserver
Last month I reached out to Liam the author of one of my favourite Linux Gaming news and review sites. I asked him if he would be willing to do a post about the milestone of LinuxGSM reaching 100 game servers supported.
It turns out GamingOnLinux uses LinuxGSM to host there 7 Days to Die server which they use for the GamingOnLinux Twitch streams. The next day an article went up highlighting the project.
I would like to thank GamingOnLinux for taking the time to write the article which you can check out here and I also personally recommend them for your Linux Gaming news.

This release has been quite a tough one with quite a bit of backend refactoring. Notable changes include moving Teamspeak 3 to use tmux, which was the only server not to use it. Refactor of the monitor command, now monitor settings can be set from _default.cfg making it much easier to add a new game server. Lots of standardising code based on shellcheck standards have also been happening to improve the code quality.
A new server many have been wanting Minecraft: Bedrock is now supported.
An important feature for myself as a developer LinuxGSM Stats is new to this release. LinuxGSM Stats allows you to send anonymous information to assist development such as game server, distro, disk usage etc. This is an opt-in feature so please consider enabling the feature as it is the best way for me to see how many game servers use LinuxGSM. For more info here.
GitHub Sponsors is now live and they are offering to match all sponsorship donations for the first year, so if you sponsor $10, I receive $20. I have signed up to this so please consider sponsoring via Github. I will also be streamlining how sponsorship works over the coming months after a very successful take up after improving my Patreon tiers. Thanks again to everyone who is supporting the work I do on this project.
LinuxGSM was featured in an article for Heise Magazine a German IT magazine. This is the first time that the project has featured in such a magazine and really shows how far the project has come.
LinuxGSM has been going since 2012 and now the latest release of LinuxGSM has hit the milestone of over 100 game servers supported.
An achievement that I am extremely proud of. It has been the amazing support and contributions from the gaming community that has helped me to continue with this project that I get so much out of.
There is still a massive backlog of servers to be added and new features to work on so plenty to be getting on with.
Check out the changelog to see the new features and fixes. https://linuxgsm.com/2019/10/v19-11-0/
Thanks all for your feedback with the survey and liking the project on alternativeto.net. I will be using the feedback to steer the direction of the project. Keep an eye out for future surveys in the future.
I have also been overhauling sponsorship/donations with new tiers on Patreon, adding a discord donation bot and ko-fi. I will be investigating other methods for raising some extra funds, to help support my growing family. https://linuxgsm.com/donate/
