TF2 Scout Pack Nears

An update to the official Team Fortress 2 Blog by Valve's Robin "Texas Ranger" Walker announces that their design and coding teams have already turned their attention to the next update pack for Team Fortress 2, as the Scout pack is basically complete except for some final art, which he says they like to do: "as late as possible to ensure that we don't waste any work." He describes how this worked in their favor as they tried several alternatives to the Scattergun, which he also says presented tricky balance issues. He offers some answers to some fan-submitted questions, and outlines their projected update schedule: "We've got an update that should be out tomorrow with a bunch of bug & exploit fixes. Later this week we hope to have another update out that changes the way we store your unlockable items. You shouldn't notice much difference, other than if you play on multiple computers we'll now propagate your item choices. You can think of that update as the one that moves your inventory into the Steam Cloud. Once that's out of the way, we'll be able to ship the Scout pack." The post is dated yesterday, so that bug fix patch he mentions for tomorrow should be expected today.
