      * pressure-vessel:
        - Use a fully-resolved path when pointing to Vulkan drivers' and layers'
          JSON manifests, fixing broken symlinks when running under Flatpak
        - Try to avoid duplicating Vulkan drivers and layers, by marking their
          manifests with the `library_arch` parameter where appropriate.
          In particular this fixes loading of released MangoHud versions
          under Flatpak (steam-runtime#618)
      * system-info:
        - Fix an incorrect use of VA-API that can cause an assertion failure in

          with non-Mesa drivers. Thanks to Emil Velikov

    steam-runtime-tools v0.20230831.0
      * system-info: Detect whether the LD_LIBRARY_PATH or container runtime
        is on a fully-featured Linux filesystem
        - Non-Linux filesystems (NTFS, FAT, SMB/CIFS, etc.) are diagnosed as a
          potential issue because they often lack features like permissions,
          ownership, symbolic links and hard links.
        - Networked filesystems (NFS, SMB/CIFS, etc.) are diagnosed as a
          potential issue because they often make "fast" metadata operations
          unexpectedly slow.
        - Overlay and user-space filesystems (overlayfs, FUSE, etc.) are
          diagnosed as a potential issue because we cannot tell whether the
          backing filesystem is in one of the above problematic categories.
      * pressure-vessel: Try to cope with being unable to set file permissions:
        - On a NTFS or other non-Unix filesystem
          (steam-runtime#434, steam-runtime#460, steam-runtime#491,
          steam-runtime#544, steam-runtime#606)
        - On a Unix filesystem owned by someone else
          (as seen in a comment on steam-runtime#434)
        - Please note that Proton is outside the scope of this project, and
          intentionally does not allow being shared between different Unix
          user IDs (see Proton#4820, steam-runtime#477).
        - Please note that the affected configurations are not recommended.
          The recommended layout is to have all Steam libraries on native,
          local Linux filesystems (ext4, btrfs, xfs or similar), owned by the
          same user ID that runs Steam.
        - System administrators should be aware that configuring write access
          to the Steam library for more than one user, for example NTFS
          with umask=007 or 000, will allow any of the users with write
          permission to gain control over the account of any other user
          who will run Steam games from that library (a privilege escalation
          security vulnerability).
          Do not use this arrangement unless you completely trust all users
          who have write access to the Steam library.
      * Update libglnx to 2023-08-29:
        - Use libglnx backport of g_strv_equal() instead of our own

      * pv-wrap: Stop providing /run/host/container-runtime.
        This was never an intended way to detect the container environment:
        the intended interface is to look for /run/host/container-manager, as
        per <https://systemd.io/CONTAINER_INTERFACE/>.
        Removing this will cause controller hotplug detection to regress in
        games that bundled their own copy of SDL between 2.25.x (sometime
        around September 2022) and 2.26.4. However, removing this can also
        avoid a crash with some bundled SDL versions.
        The regression can be avoided by not bundling SDL, and instead
        relying on the Steam Runtime to provide a sufficiently recent version.
      [ Ludovico de Nittis ]
      * graphics-provider: Ignore Homebrew/Linuxbrew paths.
        Older versions of Homebrew used to install `ldconfig` into the general
        Homebrew bin directory that was usually prepended to PATH. This
        could result in crashes, because ldconfig is tightly coupled to the
        version of glibc in use, and we would try to use Homebrew's ldconfig
        with the system glibc. Newer versions of Homebrew avoid this by not
        putting their ldconfig in the PATH. (steam-runtime#569)

      * library: Separate the libelf based checks into a separate helper.
        We can't compile inspect-library with an RPATH because we want to
        load libraries as the host system does, which means we can't guarantee
        to be able to find libelf.so.1 if the host system doesn't have it.
        Avoid this dependency by moving the libelf based checks into a separate
        helper program, with the right RPATH to find the bundled copy. This
        also keeps that code out of the critical path for identifying
        graphics drivers in pressure-vessel.

          MangoHUD that use $LIB or $PLATFORM in their layer_path
