Product Update - Valve
Sep 16, 2015
Updated the network protocol to fix double execution of some commands. For this specific update, we suggest you not download the update if you are in an existing game, as the protocol change will not allow you to connect to a game started on the previous version.

Fixed Puck's Illusory Orb not granting residual vision correctly.
