Valve has launched yet another Beta version for its Steam for Linux client, this time with just a few minor fixes and improvements.

After a development version garners sufficient changes, Valve promotes that version to stable. The work for the next beta starts almost immediately.

Highlights of the latest Steam for Linux update:

• Improvements for upcoming Steam releases have been implemented. This could mean that Left for Dead 2 or other important titles are on their way.
• The diagnostic information has been adjusted in some of the automatic error and crash reports.

There are a few other changes, but they only apply to the Windows client.

This is a Beta software and this means that bugs are bound to surface. Download the Steam for Linux installer from Softpedia and join the Beta program in the Settings in order to get access to the latest version.
