Product Update - Valve
Jun 15
Updates for Counter-Strike: Source, Day of Defeat: Source, Half-Life Deathmatch: Source, Half-Life 2: Deathmatch, and the Source SDK 2013 Base have been released. The updates will be applied automatically when you restart the game. The major changes include:

  • Improved Steam Voice support
    • Removed sv_use_steam_voice convar. Steam voice is now selected via "sv_voicecodec steam"
    • Fixed demos not properly recording Steam Voice status, resulting in potential corrupt voice in demos with differing default settings
    • Will now use the native Steam Voice sampling rate, instead of clamping to 11kHz
    • Improved compatibility with Steam client beta
  • Added CELT audio codec currently in use in TF2 and CS:GO
    • Server operators may enable use of this codec via "sv_voicecodec vaudio_celt"
    • Steam voice remains the default voice codec in all SDK2013 games
  • Updated spec_player command to match recent improvements in TF2
    • Now accepts partial player names, Steam IDs, etc.
  • Fixed security issue reported by Amat Cama via GeekPwn
  • Fixed security issues reported by Justin Taft from One Up Security, LLC
  • Updated engine with recent stability and bug fixes from TF2
  • Updated handling of game language setting to match Team Fortress 2 behavior:
    • Steam per-game language setting is now properly honored and syncs with the in-game setting
    • In-game UI language now honors above language setting, rather than improperly using the Steam client's UI language setting
      • Users wishing to have separate UI and audio languages may pass -audiolanguage on the command line
  • Updated the localization files
  • [DoD:S] Updated custom loading error dialog to include numerous tweaks and fixes that have previously been applied to the base version
