  • Install Script Windows: A crucial bug that prevented the automatic display of install script windows when launching a game for the first time has been fixed.

  • Loading Library Data: Users with a large collection of non-Steam games will no longer face issues with the client getting stuck in 'Loading Library Data'.

  • Steam Link Accessibility: The update clarifies dialog messages when accessing the store via Steam Link from certain devices.

  • Notification System: The issue of notifications not firing for completed downloads and pending friend invite roll-ups has been addressed.

Steam Input Fixes

Desktop Mode Enhancements

  • Systray Menu: The systray menu now updates accurately when entering or exiting Family View. This fix enhances the user interface experience in Desktop Mode, making it more intuitive and responsive to user actions.
