A Steam client update is now available. To apply the update, click the File menu inside of Steam and then select "Check for Steam Client Updates...". The specific changes include:

Steam Client

Fixed possible case where Steam would get stuck with "Downloading starting..." when trying to download

Added NTFS check when trying to install Empire: Total War

Added new dialog to inform the user they failed to register a CD key because they do not own a game which is required to register the key (Empire: Total War Special Forces)

Added more download regions for Australia

Fixed several update news links for games going to the wrong page

Added more information to the game launch display when first-time install steps are being ran

Fixed HL2.exe hanging on shutdown

Increased max width of links on game properties dialog (general tab) to match the now wider properties panel.

Fixed the 'launching game' dialog always waiting for user input if there was update news available

Updated localization files for dialog variable changes (fixes %s1 appearing in some languages)

New notification shown when an application is downloaded or updated

Added teamfortress.com, tf2.com, etc. to list of approved chat urls

Fixed case where retail install would be unnecessarily slow

Fixed third-party installers not running if an installer before it failed

Several Steamworks updates

Thank god. I've been waiting forever for the "Download Starting" bug and the HL2.exe stopped working bug to get fixed. Normally i wouldn'tt post this, but this is a biggy.

This has been in beta for the past 2 weeks I think. Works really well, the little popups that tell you Steam is done downloading something are handy. Though Hl2.exe still seems to crash on exit for me.

I didnt really see the crash on exit thing that big of a deal. You are already out of game so.... where is the issue? Click whatever and move on. Its like half a second of your time. Eh.

Yes, you don't have to worry about that part.
