Major Steam Update Released for Linux Users

Valve releases a new stable version of its Steam platform

Valve has released a new stable version of its Steam client, featuring a lot of changes and improvements.

Valve usually pushes a few Beta updates before upgrading the stable branch of Steam, and now it's time for a new stable version to be released.

According to the developers, the application now tracks games that use an intermediate launcher a lot better, the text is now displayed correctly in some Big Picture controls, and a crash at startup with certain window managers has been corrected.

Also, the Downloads section, including download-queue management and quick links to throttling and app update settings, has been updated, providing much better information about the downloads.

Check the official announcement for more details about this release. You can also download the Steam installer from Softpedia if you don't have the client, and you can also check our Steam for Linux review.
