Steam Client Update Released

A new Steam client has been released and is being automatically downloaded.

General

  • Fixed video content not playing correctly (black screen or corrupt image)
  • Fixed an issue with some older games which resulted in a cloud file conflict immediately after installation
  • Improved detection and recovery after receiving corrupt file data from a download server

Windows

  • Fixed a chat-related crash that could be triggered by malicious users
  • Fixed blank screens when running from a folder-mounted partition which does not have a traditional DOS drive letter
  • Improved font rendering for Unicode chat text to better match with other platforms

Steam Controller

  • Fixed non-Steam Shortcuts displaying incorrect configuration when accessed via the Game Details page
  • Added desktop mode Detail View Link to edit Controller Configuration if a controller is connected.
  • Added time-stamp to personal configurations in the configuration browser.
  • Improved precision of Gyro.
  • Fixed a bug with localized Title and Description of official configurations.
  • Fixed Select Cursor Position helper screen appearing opaque when used in-game.
  • Fixed Analog Trigger range being incorrect.
  • Fixed crash that occurred when creating an entirely empty touch menu or radial menu.
  • Fixed PS4 Glyphs in Big Picture appearing incorrectly in SteamOS/Linux.
  • A copy to the link to the configuration is now automatically copied to clipboard when uploading a community configuration.
  • Fixed mouse joystick visualization resetting to default pad rotation when selecting it.
  • Fix for pairing controllers sometimes failing to be able to enter their code properly when multiple controllers were attached.
  • Fixed a bug where if the configurator was open in the browser, time wouldn’t be accumulated towards being able to save a configuration.
  • Changed the time limit before posting a configuration down to 5 minutes.
  • Fix for button presses and other inputs leaking through to big picture when using a Guide-Chord combo. This primarily showed up as a Turn Off Controller action resulting in launching a game.
  • Fixes for unique/shared configurations not always being set properly
  • Fixed a bug during controller registration where network hiccups could cause no configurations to be received until Steam was restarted.
  • Fix for Shortcuts to Non-Steam Games whose names were entirely blank or composed of only path unfriendly characters resulting in bad configurations or a crash.
  • Fix for conflict between stick and touchpad when using on-screen keyboard with a PS4 controller.
  • Made on-screen keyboard exclusive to a single controller, so whichever controller initiated the invocation will be used.
  • Fixed autosave behavior not being immediately reflected when leaving/re-entering the configurator when a response from the backend isn’t received quickly.
  • Fixed saves not showing immediately in the configuration browser.

SteamVR

  • Fixed an issue where you could continue to be marked “in game” after closing all VR applications
  • Internal changes for forthcoming SteamVR 360 video playback

Big Picture
