At 19.00 PST (about 3 hours from now) Valve will release its Wednesday steam update. As always updating is a simple matter of closing and reopening steam. The update also will not have any direct impact on any games. Here is the change log:

STEAM:
  • Fixed bug in create account wizard where it would stall if a failure had previously occurred
  • Switch minidump generation back to small memory dumps, instead of full memory dumps
  • Localized content caches now mapped into app dependency list dynamically
  • Add progress bar for cache validation

SERVER BROWSER:
  • Added history tab showing servers most recently connected to
  • Added ability to add/remove columns from server lists
  • Added secure server & ip address columns (off by default)
  • Set bots column to be hidden by default
  • Changed location filter control to appear on every page, but disabled when appropriate
  • Changed location filter to use '' instead of 'world', to match the other filters
  • Double-clicking between column headers in ListPanel now resizes the column to fit the widest text
  • Fixed HTML control not laying out properly the first time the scrollbar was made visible

HLDS UPDATE:
  • Improved load balancing randomization
  • If InstallRecord.blob is not found, it will verify the current install instead of starting over from version zero

HL news is VERY thin on the ground thanks to the HL2 debacle, coupled with this close to christmas there is no other news, we have to post what we can get. No one is forcing you to read it :|
