A required update for Team Fortress 2 is now available.  Please run 
hldsupdatetool to receive it.  The specific changes include:

* If the installation is an HLTV relay we allow clients to connect as HLTV 
clients even if tv_enable is set to false. A recent exploit fix made it such 
that we ignore the flag indicating that the client is an HLTV client if 
tv_enable is false, but it is possible that relays won't have this ConVar set

Additions / Changes

    - Backpack can now be sorted by type
    - Multi-selection in the backpack is now done by holding down the Ctrl key
* Alt-fire on the Sandvich now drops sandviches:
    - A single sandvich can be dropped at a time. Dropping the sandvich removes 
it from the Heavy

being at full health

* Medic regen changes:
    - Base regen amount increased from 1/sec to 3/sec
    - Regen amount increase since time of last damage decreased from 3x to 2x
    - End result of above: Old healing scaled from 1/sec to 3/sec based on time 
since being damaged (maxed out at 10 seconds). New healing scales from 3/sec to

    - Replaced "No critical hits" negative attribute with "-2 health drained 
per second on wearer"
    - Health drain stacks on top of the above Medic regen changes, lowering the 
base regen by 2h/sec

                - Spectator indices are now shown on the team members, and 
hitting the corresponding weapon selection key (slot1-slot12 commands) will 
spectate them

a team

Bug Fixes
* Fixed explosive radius detection using an axially aligned box instead of a

50% of what they lost at the corners of the OBB
    - Grenades/Pipes radius change: 132->159
    - Rocket radius change: 121->146
