Updated the beta to fix a bug that could cause Steam to fail to update game binaries for Episode 1, Episode 2, Lost Coast, and Half-Life: Source. After this update it is possible that one or more of these games will fail to start with the message "Unable to load library client." If this happens to you, just run the game again and the problem will correct itself.
