Steam for Linux, the digital distribution platform developed by Valve, has been patched again, this time bringing a fix for a bug that corrupted textures on Intel machines.

Steam for Linux is still in the Beta stage of development and Valve is making a lot of changes to the client.

Highlights of the new Steam for Linux update:

• An audio hang in games on systems with XDG_RUNTIME_DIR set (Kubuntu 12.10) has been fixed;
• A crash which occurred on startup and which was caused by a corrupt ClientRegistry.blob file has been fixed;
• A bug w/overlay corrupting textures on Intel GPU machines has been repaired.

A complete list of changes can be found in the official announcement. Keep in mind that this is Beta software, so problems are bound to appear.
