A new Steam Client update has been released and will be automatically downloaded. The specific changes are listed below.
- Fixed a possible UI hang at startup - Improved reliability for Steamworks P2P networking - Added multi-pass retry logic for Steam client updating process - Added the ability to temporarily override the download bandwidth limit when launching a game that needs updating - Removed â€œApproximate speed of your connectionâ€ selector from Settings->Downloads. This was only used to set a default â€œrateâ€ setting for some Valve and Source Engine games. The default rate value is correct for almost everyone and the value should be adjusted in each game if appropriate going forward . - Fixed game update issue when an unexpected folder exists in the install directory and we need to replace it with a file - Fixed restoring game backups for Half-Life and Half-Life 2 engine based games - Fixed picking the wrong Steam Library folder for games with dependencies on already installed games - Fixed a case where the toast from an incoming chat message would show an older message instead of the most recent - Improved â€œTime remainingâ€ calculation when downloading or updating games - Fixed Half-Life mods running the incorrect binary on OSX/Linux - Fixed desktop dialog layout when running an install script - Increased the size of Big Picture and Steamworks API HTTP caches on disk, but also added a 10k file per cache upper limit on individual file count regardless of total disk space used - Improved reliability of store/community web auto-login inside the client in some unusual HTTP proxy environments - Linux: Fix shift and control key state sticking sometimes, such as during screenshot selection
- Fixed a case where footer buttons could double activate and trigger the activation failure sound erroneously - Added support for purchasing subscription based games - Fixed a case where input focus could escape modal dialogs incorrectly - Fixed a rare crash if running Big Picture and alt-tabbed to another non-Steam and non-game window while Steam is trying to show a notification - OSX/Linux: Fix for re-sizing Big Picture after a game changes the screen resolution
