Client Update - Valve
Jan 10, 2011
A Steam client update is now available. To apply the update, click the File menu inside of Steam and then select "Check for Steam Client Updates...". The specific changes include:

  • Made various improvements to Recommendations:
    • Made some general improvements to the algorithm to make "Similar Items" a little more similar
    • Changed primary source for generated recommendations to be recent playtime rather than recent purchases, prioritizing "new to you" games (ie, games where your recent playtime makes up the bulk of your total playtime for that game)
    • Fixed DLC recommendations showing for games you haven't really played yet
    • Games you've recommended will now be shown on your community profile page
    • Fixed friend recommendations for free games you haven't yet played to show on your recommended page just like friend recommendations for games you don't own.
    • Added links to the new "Friend Activity" page to the store homepage and community home panel.
  • Added Turkish translation to the Steam client
  • [Windows] Chinese, Japanese, and Korean typing support in the in-game overlay, for some games

  • Improved Matchmaking function performance
  • Fixed starting game executables with very long command line parameters (>255 characters)

  • [Mac OSX] Improved Cmd-W to be more reliable
