Now that steam deck is coming out, java edition needs a couple of things to keep up.
- Controller support
- Menu navigation improvements
Controller support is important, because the steam deck controls are primarily touch and joystick based.
The UI system of Minecraft is in need of serious improvements. There's no arrow key or tab navigation in menus and modding the UI is also a compatibility nightmare with possible button overlaps.
I suggest adding some sort of layout system not based on fixed layouts (coordinate type system), and implementing focusable buttons, text fields, etc.
