Steam for Linux Client Receives Performance Improvements

A new beta version of the Steam client has been released by Valve

Valve has launched yet another Beta version for its Steam for Linux client, this time with just a few minor fixes and improvements.

After a development version garners sufficient changes, Valve promotes that version to stable. The work for the next beta starts almost immediately.

Highlights of the latest Steam for Linux update:

• Screenshots are working again in this beta;

• The font size has been increased in the chat window, in order to improve readability;

• A performance regression in the UI, that occurred when downloading game updates under Linux, has been fixed;

• The order of the elements in the Library Details view has been fixed.

A complete list of this release can be found in the official announcement.

This is a Beta software and this means that bugs are bound to surface. Download the Steam for Linux installer from Softpedia and join the Beta program in the Settings in order to get access to the latest version.
