New H-L/C-S/TFC Today

Counter-Strike NZ (thanks Gameplanet and Frans) has a post up describing Valve's plans to release a new Half-Life update via the Steam system sometime today. The update will include a new version 1.1.2.0 of Half-Life, Counter-Strike version 1.6, and a new version of TeamFortress Classic. Here's a bit: "This update won't be a required update initially; there will be a grace period where both CS 1.5 on old servers and CS 1.6 on new Steam servers will be playable online, before the old version will stop working. "In a couple of weeks we will make this update mandatory," said Alfred Reynolds from Valve Software. Players should beware you will require a valid Half-Life or Half-Life: Counter-Strike CD Key in order to install the update. All players will be assigned new 'Steam IDs' and the WONID system will slowly be phased out."

All I want is a more efficient way of preventing cheats.
I am hopeful that Steam will be the answer. My cynical self tells me it will only be a matter of time before things return to their status quo. I.e cheaters everywhere. This is really the only thing that has made me look forward to the full implementation of steam. A more current way of preventing cheats. To me this is the D-day for the anti-cheat. Make or break.

I am competetive, whether it is on the tennis court or whether it is playing a game of cs. Please Please please,
kill all the 10 year old cheating amobie that currently infest all that is good and pure.

In anticipation of HL2's release (secretly delayed?), I've been replaying the original Half-Life single player mission. Valve, I'll be happy to try out the new license management software (Steam?) in exchange for some updated textures and models for the original game. What better way to stress test Steam before it really counts?

It looks like http://www.steampowered.com is down or gone...? Isn't that the homepage for Steam?

Just to be on the safe side, it is a beta you are talking about after all, you should uninstall before installing 1.0

Anyone know if you have the Steam beta installed if it will update itself to 1.0, or do we have to actually download a new installer?

This won't affect Natural Selection or The Specialists, right?
