Steam Update

Word on Steam News is that a Steam update will automatically install the next time the client software is launched (thanks Frans). Here's the deal:

A Steam update has just been released. The next time you restart Steam, the update will take effect. Here are the details on what is included:

  • Added support for "trickle update", which will allow updates to games to be delivered over time before they are activated.
  • Optimizations in Steam targeted at reducing CPU and memory load on some systems.
  • Progress dialog always shows now during startup.
  • Fixed handling of cache fingerprint mismatch on reconnect
  • Fixed case which would cause the preloader ignoring errors to send extra messages to the Steam servers.
  • Fixed bug in Steam that would cause cache to be validated too often when Steam started. This would cause hard drive thrashing.
  • Fixed a potential lockup case and access violation case in Steam.
