Steam for Linux, the digital distribution platform developed by Valve, has just received an important update and gets a little closer to a stable release.
Steam for Linux is still in the Beta stage of development and Valve is making a lot of changes to the client.
The previous release of the client was just a few days ago, but the developers have pushed another version, with a complete other set of changes and improvements.
