Here's a press release from inXile that we didn't get yesterday because it got lost in the mail somehow:

Wasteland 2 Early Access Now on Linux
Major Update Released

Newport Beach, CA – April 18 2014 – Today inXile is proud to add Linux support to Wasteland 2 Early Access, making it available on all three platforms promised in the Wasteland 2 Kickstarter: Windows, OSX and Linux.

Along with Linux support, the beta version of Wasteland 2 has seen a major update, adding another major area in Arizona, the new vendor screen, and numerous tweaks, fixes and optimization passes. The full patch notes list roughly 400 such changes: http://wastelandrpg.tumblr.com/post/83039841274/wasteland-2-early-beta-update-39080-notes

With these major systems implemented, Wasteland 2 is in the final stages of development. The Steam Early Access Release now includes over 40% of the game.
We already know all about this update, since it was described extensively in the previous two Kickstarter updates, but for completeness' sake, here's a list of the main improvements from the changelog:

High Profile Fixes:

The Titans have been released! A new area is available.

The vendor screen has been completely redesigned!

Tutorials have been added

New Mark Morgan tracks

Large balance pass on weapons and dropsets across the world

Thanks to Brother None for informing me of the press release that wasn't.
