Written by Unknown and translated by Unknown on 02.07.2010 Time 11:18

Valve eliminated several bugs and released improvements for the server browser , Team Fortress 2, the Source engine and Steam. Now, servers can also be filtered by it's slots. Moreover, some upgrades have been implemented for raising the ease of operation.

On Team Fortress 2, many bugs of Source TV have been coreccted. Furthermore, the engineer is now able to use the pistol form Sam & Max. For us as a website, Valve improved the API for TF2 Items. However, the work on the TF2 data bank was nearly done, although we will see how to imply this service. All the other facts in the changelog:

    • Mouseover the checkbox now explains the simplified list in the status bar.
