A prerelease update is available for Counter-Strike: Source, Day of Defeat: Source, Half-Life Deathmatch: Source, Half-Life 2: Deathmatch, and the Source SDK 2013 Base. The update notes are below.
Prerelease branches can be accessed in Steam via the Properties -> Betas tab. Dedicated servers can pass -beta prerelease to the app_update command in SteamCMD. If all goes well, this branch will be promoted to the current release in the coming days, so please let us know if you encounter any issues. Note that this is *not* the previously mentioned toolchain update for these games, which is still slated for the near future. - John --------- - Improved Steam Voice support - Removed sv_use_steam_voice convar.
